    I'm not German. I do not ignore the mood of the German people between the world wars, result misery that resulted from the first. I do not ignore the anti-Semitisms, which was not and is not exclusive to the German people. I do not ignore the atrocities committed by German soldiers, but also I do not ignore the atrocities committed by the other side, for example, Dresden and Hiroshima - and the atrocities that have been committed and are in all wars that are being committed now, not only Syria, on both sides. But no people can be held accountable for any war. The initiative of a war never was and never will be of any people. The initiative wars was and is always an elite. And so it is true that even in Germany, the elite tried to avoid war and was not only able to cope with (or kill) Hitler.
