As I recall, Germany did not attack us first in World War II. I believe that the first time that Americans and Germans clashed in World War Ii, it was during an American "sneak attack".<quoted text>
So you wanted we should have waved peace signs at the National Socialists?
And while the Germans never killed a single American civilian. the U.S. deliberately targeted, and killed, hundreds of thousands of German civilians. I suppose the theory was that they would then not support the war, and thus vote their politicians out of office).
