Even at Nurenberg, western allies were not naive of the Katyn manipulation...Of course, this is the most famous...
As for the evidence, what are they supposed to be related to ? The massacre of their own liberated prisoners ? of the Cosacks? of the surviving non-communist polish and Baltic States' intelligentia ? Well right now, i can nor do i bother give any physical evidence...so they all must have been resettled peacefully somewhere...my mistake...
As for the treatments of German pows during the War, the archives are available...
No, I agree, they were not naive, but they did not say anything against the Russians, and they knew that it was false from the beginning since they knew about it. That puts both parties at risk of being biased, and is another reason why we raise questions.
They did not raise the issue of the evidence that the Soviets did it, but they let the Soviets submit it. They were more concerned with convicting Germany then truth. That tells of their biased views against Germany.
And the evidence? Surely you understand that we are talking about those autopsies of the ones presented by the Soviets right? You know, the ones where the Soviets submitted and we are supposed to take for granted?
And you do not care right now for physical evidence? That is like saying that you will take the witnesses word for it, without any kind of evidence at all.
I am affraid, you don't remember correctly...there are - in theory - "Rules of war"...so it all depend of how they did die in battle.
And again, you don't need autopsies of the victims to state that the bombing of Desden was a war crime...Of course, they won't be legal evidence as there are no trial of victors ever...Still the crime remains...
Yes, but you and I were talking about war, not war crimes. You made the point about it, I am just answering.
Actually, yes, in any war crime, there should be autopsies. But here is the thing, why has no one tried to show us these mass graves so autopsies could be done? Why has no bodies been found?
a specific evidence can be dismissed without putting the whole case in jeopardy
Yes, but not the person lying in the case. They are caught, then, as I have pointed out earlier in this post, lying under oath could cause your whole case to be thrown out.
And why are you ignoring most of Hannover's points?
