I would draw a difference between "rejoicing" and "discussing what we think is true".
I don't see anything wrong with arguing that: "A lot less people would have died if Hitler hadn't become the leader of Germany, or Pol Pot the leader of Cambodia, or ..."
I do see a problem with holding ideas like: "May Hitler, Pol Pot, ... roast in hell for a long time..."
