Perhaps this conversation IS over.
You are fixated on the "Nazi" of WW2 and seem to forget about the other thousands of years of history. Go ahead, commemorate WW1 and WW2, as I do, and many others do but you have absolutely no grasp of the concept of context yourself and your lack of open mindedness is what makes conflicts around the world persist.
I fully comprehend the difference between "remembrance" and "commemoration". But with your biased North American opinions you'll never get past the fact that the "soldier", regardless of nationality, should be "commemorated".
Would you fight for your country? Your religion? Your fellow man? To stop tyranny? You can't judge a person's or country's decisions until you have walked in their shoes. I think you've been watching too many Bush broadcasts my friend!
