We’re the United States too soft on the Nazis after they were taken over? They literally hired Nazis to work on their military.  ?

I understand that we needed help because we were technologically behind and needed to bomb the Japanese but still.  What are your views on this?

    Those Nazi scientists and the information they gathered through years of brutal experiments has saved more lives than they had taken in the years since. Had the US executed them or not grabbed them up, everything they had learned would have gone to waste.

    We weren’t THAT far behind the Germans. For instance we were light years ahead of the Germans on the 1 and only secret weapons project that could win the war: the atomic bomb. The Germans, for all the fear we had that we were trying to catch up, only ever scratched the surface of atomic weaponry research. Yeah, the Germans were ahead of rocketry and jet research, but neither played any significant role in wrapping up the war in the Pacific. Anyways, the German research and scientists we got were not useful for ending WW2, but were considered vital for confronting the Russians at the start of the Cold War. 

    We were too easy on the Nazis and denazification. I think we were too quick to forget the Nazis atrocities and turn towards confronting the Soviets. Too many Nazis were able to evade capture and justice. Thankfully the Israelis kept on hunting these guys.

    It’s a moral dilemma. Is it ok to use knowledge from evil people for your own (good?) purposes?

    I remember a similar discussion about the work of Mengele. whose methods were horrific. However, we can’t undo his experiments, so if any scientific knowledge gained can be useful in saving lives now, I would say that stupid to ignore it.

    As for USA pardoning Nazis for the space program, or anyone other than the leaders, it’s hard to know if they were committed Nazis or just trying to survive by not refusing orders.

    Operation Paper clip Run By the US army was to help 10,000 top Nazis escape to the USA and South America Via the Vatican

    the reason the USA and the Vatican Preferred Fascists to Communists

    all the Americans wanted to do was to Go Home

    so the British had to hold Military courts martial  to Punish the Lower Ranks

    HRH was too busy making Friends with the Japanese Earl Mountbatten held his own Trials and Ignored his Inferior Officer

    HRH Ordered all Top Japanese officers to Japan Earl Mountbatten Supreme Commander of South East Asia held trials and Hung the Guilty

    HRH pardoned too many Japanese

    as for the Nazis the USSR did the Right Thing 90,000 Captured at Stalingrad  and only 5000 made it home again now that was Justice

    when i was in Germany with the RAF after WW2 we had Germans working for us all been vetted and Not war Criminals

    and I was overheard saying the Supermen of the Master Race sweep the Snow of the Runway just like us Mortals do

    Although many scientists worked for the Nazi-controlled countries, they never held Nazi values. They were refugees who fled to America to escape the Nazi regime.

    It was actually great for America because, as you said, they caught America up on technology by building the computing industries, nuclear industries, NASA, etc...

    The United States were too soft on the Nazis in a different way--- by not making the D-Day happen sooner.

    The result of knowing both sides of the issue is the possibility of knowing that we have been lied to.

    If you have the moral integrity and the time to listen to the other side of the story, there is audio available that provides the point of view from the German perspective. It answers the question "WHY?" that mainstream narratives never ask and are afraid to answer.

    This kind of thing used to be freely available on Youtube but has been banned (as "hate speech" to justify the censorship).

    Before I get the usual downvotes from people who deny anything that doesn't agree with what they believe (and most of my comments anyway), take note that this reply does not support nor oppose either side - other than providing a link to the other side of the story. This is the fair thing to do in any debate.

    I am simply allowing the avenue for readers to decide for themselves. Every downvote shown on this comment represents someone who doesn't want the truth to be known.

    The following 2 videos give an account of what happened from the German viewpoint. This is what you're not allowed to see.

    They are approximately 2 hours in total.

    Nazi scientists didn't have anything to do with the atomic bomb. 

    Germany was the only country ahead of the US in technology but they were behind the US in nuclear technology.

    Trying to go after each and every rank and file Nazi would be too big of an undertaking.
