The United States cannot be possibly be compared with Nazi Germany. Does that make its war on Iraq more excusable, or all the more reprehensible?
“[Foreign Minister Joachim von] Ribbentrop informed us that the war against the Soviet Union would start that same day and asked the German press to present the war against the Soviet Union as a preventative war for the defense of the fatherland, as a war which was forced upon us through the immediate danger of an attack of the Soviet Union against Germany. The claim that this was a preventative war was later repeated by the newspapers which received their instructions from me during the usual daily parole of the Reich Press Chief. I, myself, have also given this presentation of the cause of the war in my regular broadcasts.” – The Nazi propagandist, Hans Fritzche, testifying before the Nuremburg tribunal.
