Where's the justice in a godless universe for this if there is no ultimate judgment?

Pol Pot, Former Khmer Rouge Leader, Dead at 73 7.27 a.m. ET (1127 GMT) April 16, 1998 PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) Cheating pursuers who believed they were days away from capturing him for trial, toppled Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot died peacefully in his sleep evading prosecution in the deaths of as many as 2 million countrymen. He was 73. Cambodians wept in disappointment after hearing that Pol Pot had died of heart failure Wednesday in a jungle hut on the Thai border, even as the last diehard members of his vanquished movement were moving toward surrendering him to an international tribunal. "He deserved to die. I am only sorry that he died so easily without being tried," sobbed Kim Saren, whose entire family mother, father and eight brothers and sisters died under Pol Pot's regime. A Christian can confidently tell Kim Saren that Pol Pot will face the perfect, holy justice of a righteous God and be judged for what he did. Not only for what he did to Kim's family but for other's in Cambodia as well. The atheist can only answer with..."Oh well, too bad, so sad." Which law? What government? Hitler instituted a government of facism that declared Jews were subhuman and not worthy of life. Those citizens of the Third Reich, when they turned in Jews, were tied to the laws of the men in power in the Third Reich and acted under the authority of that government. They were acclaimed and applauded by their government for turning Jews in. Is that the kind of accountability to the laws of men and government you're talking about? Yet we would both agree (I hope) that Hitler's government was despotic. Why? How do we know that? If we only act according to the laws of men, then the laws of men can be changed according to what is right for the ones in power. Might makes right. Killing Jews was what was right in Hitler's eyes. That is social relativism at work. Also, if there is no God to whom we are accountable and who judges us or an afterlife then Hitler got away with it didn't he? Hitler believed in annihilation after death. Death was just the big sleep. So when the Allied forces were breathing hard down his neck and he took his own life in that bunker, he escaped judgment then according to atheism, didn't he? Six million plus Jews and all he had to do was off himself? Hardly seems equitable does it? But if you're an atheist and don't believe in a God or afterlife then Hitler got off easy. Along with Pol Pot, Stalin, and others. What law is there that tells us that a society such as Hitler's, Pol Pot's, Stalin's, Mao Tse Tung's are despotic without a higher law than man's standards to tell us so?
