Explanation Does Not Justify

Sorry, I cannot understand why your comment has been down-voted. Granted, the unfairly punitive terms of the Treaty of Versailles led to World War II, but that is no justification for the Nazi conquest of Europe, not to mention the systematic genocide of ethnic minorities like the Jews. As you so aptly said, Abraham Lincoln was a vile tyrant, but Adolf Hitler makes him look like a little bunny rabbit hopping through the meadow. The U.S. had no business interfering in Europe, but that does not mean that Hitler was entitled to subjugate the entire continent to avenge Germany.
