Pat Buchanan: Was WWII worth it?

Despite making some good points about the follies of Yalta, FDR and Churchill, Pat Buchanan displays either ignorance or anti-Semitism when he asks this question:

    If the objective of the West was the destruction of Nazi Germany, it was a "smashing" success. But why destroy Hitler? If to liberate Germans, it was not worth it. After all, the Germans voted Hitler in.
Apparently Buchanan never heard of Auschwitz, Dachau or Treblinka.

I've thought long and probingly about these sorts of larger questions relating to interventionism, and here's what I have oin my website (rather than rehashing it or letting Pat go totally unrebutted).

Foreign Policy: Dictators and Genocide
