not certain - their culture values strength. Without a show of
strength, America won't be respected by Iran.

This. Exactly this.

Their culture perceives diplomacy as a sign of weakness. It is the reason there will never be peace in the middle east, at least not until End Times.

This is what is good about the "deal of the century." It accepts the reality that the Arabs don't want a deal. That they will continue to scream and yell as long as nobody bombs them into oblivion. 

There may be demands that Israel is willing to meet, but they're not going to be able to have them heard until they drop destroying Israel off the wishlist.

What do think of this story?

Former Nazi Guard Is Convicted in One of Germany’s Last Holocaust Trials
The 93-year-old defendant was convicted of 5,230 counts of accessory to murder — one for each person’s death while he was at the Stutthof camp — but was tried in juvenile court, because he was 17 at the time.

Currently, he is 93 years old, he was 17 years old at the time, and he was one of the lowest ranking solders at the camp.

These stories keep popping up every now and then.

They are just a nother case of "We won, and we show it destroying our helpless enemies for dramatical effect".

I don't think most of these sentences accomplish anything in practice. They are not about reintegrating criminals in society. Besides, I doubt most of this people can be held responsible of half the stuff they put on them. I mean, I bet if you were a soldier in the Nazi army and refused to get some jew shot on command, they would have shot you for insubordination.

I am sure he would have been executed or put in a camp if he didn't comply. They are saying he was morally wrong for making the choice he did. With that reasoning there would be no wars because murder is wrong.  Humans will do whatever it takes to survive, including morally wrong things. 

We held von Braun as a hero for getting us to the moon, he wasn't tried.  

Now that he has been convicted I am sure this 93 year-old has learned his lesson and will think long and hard before becoming a guard in a Nazi concentration camp again.  Justice has been served.

Seems like this is a slippery slope that ends up justifying holding descendants of plantation holders guilty for the human rights abuses of their great great grand fathers.

I suppose this kind of thing does help grease the slippery slope from "actual nazis" to "people we call nazis". Yes, the holocaust was one of the most horrible moments in our world's history. But it's also over. It's been over for decades, just like slavery is over.
