Double standard for war crimes

We're concerned about German war crimes? Why aren't American war crimes prosecuted?

An 89-year-old man, John Demjanjuk, is being held accountable for things he most likely was forced to do during World War II, the same as U.S. soldiers must abide by their orders.

The United States has committed war crimes too, so why should the United States or anyone condemn this man for acting as he was ordered to? Maybe your son or daughter should go to prison for killing innocent people in any war the U.S. is involved in. What is the difference?
