Comparing the Islamic terrorists to the Nazis and Japanese doesn't cut it.  The Islamic fundamentalists are far worse than most of the people fighting on the side of Germany and Japan in WWII.  Most of the guys fighting for the Axis in WWII were just normal guys, with only a small number of units actively engaging in the atrocities that came to define their country.  On the other hand, most of the Islamic fundamentalists we are fighting today would think nothing of shooting little girls in the face for wanting to be educated, or cutting the heads off of civilians just because they are Jews.

@TonoFonesca - I'll buy the argument that European Axis soldiers weren't all insane and cruel, but the Japanese had a totally different attitude towards war. They thought nothing of treating military prisoners or civilians of conquered nations with absolute contempt and cruelty. Islamic radicals are batshit insane for sure though.
