Normandy wasn’t “given back to France”, France invaded and re-occupied it. France was hardly “ freed from Fascism,”either: it went straight from the bloody French Revolution to the Imperial Dictatorship of Napoleon within a generation. My point was not about the injustices of the past were injustices or not, it was about their not being valid excuses for starting wars in the present. Otherwise Wars will never end, and our future will be a never-ending series of paybacks for past wrongs. Anyone can find justification for any evil act in the history of Man’s inhumanity to Man, but decent people should avoid doing so, and seek to find common ground instead.
