    If she didn't commit suicide, would Eva Braun have been tried at Nuremberg?

    Let's assume that Adolf Hitler's star-crossed lover, Eva Braun, didn't commit suicide and lived. She would surely have been captured by Soviet soldiers. However, when the Nuremberg Trial started, would she be a defendant? All she seems to be guilty of was Hitler's point of affection and marrying...

    Should foreigners be more harshly punished if they commit crimes?

    I don't see why not. We already punish the same crime differently according to different situation and different victims and different intentions, so I don't see why that shouldn't apply in this case aswell. Commiting a crime as a foreigner is more reprensibile because he0s a guest in someone...

    Why exactly did Israel commit the Lavon Affair?

    I get that they claim the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty was an accident... I am glad no casualties occurred in the Lavon Affair aside from the members of the cell who committed suicide but why would you want to trick an ally into going to war with another country?

    What atrocities did the Allies commit in World War 2?

    This is not in any way to sympathize with fascist Italy, Nazi Germany or imperialist Japan but I want to steer away from the Mary Sue mentality toward history. What atrocities/war-crimes did Britain, France and other allies commit during the war?

    I've read that Nixon committed treason by circumventing then-president LBJ concerning Vietnam, something about telling authorities to wait until he took office to make decisions, etc. What happened and was this treason?

    Why did Socrates commit suicide? Why did Athens care??

    This had just occured to me, Historiumites! Why did Socrates commit suicide, rather than face exile like the Athenians wanted? And, at any rate, why did Socrates' teachings bother Athens so damned much? I thought Athens, at the time, was the beacon of knowledge, so why, in 399 BC, Athens was...

    Did the allies also commit war crimes?

    After World War 2 many Nazi-leaders were executed because of the war crimes they committed. Reasonable of course because of what they did. But now I was wondering did the allies also commit war crimes? For example the bombardment of Dresden that sweeped away an entire city, is that considered a...
