SS = Scout Snipers: US Marines adopt Nazi goons emblem

There are 30 comments on the rt.com story from Feb 10, 2012, titled SS = Scout Snipers: US Marines adopt Nazi goons emblem. In it, rt.com reports that:

A picture showing a US Marine scout sniper team posing in front of what appears as a flag of the notorious Nazi organization SS, has surfaced online. The Marine Corps confirmed that the embarrassing photo taken in Afghanistan is real.

The Marines posing in the photo wanted to identify themselves as scout snipers, not Nazis, reports the British newspaper Daily Mail, citing a spokesman of the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. The SS, or Schutzstaffel, was the military wing of the German Nazi Party. They played an essential part in many crimes against humanity, including the genocide of Jews in territories controlled by the Third Reich.

What is so wrong with that? I have always favored the idea that the USA adopt Waffen SS tactics. Adolf Eichmann was my hero.

It just goes to show that the Americans have been so busy with their self-aggrandizement and virtually pushing out any mention of Russias humongous contribution to the WWII and hte cost of that contribution being some 27 million dead in Russia alone, thanks to the homicidal, genocidal practices of the German Nazis.

The Americans claim to have "saved humanity>" but that is laughable as they didn't even set foot on the European continent until the Russians who were fighting 90 percent of the german troops defeated the Nazis and sent them running home.

the Americans don't have a clue what it meant to be overrun by the Nazis and what vicious, and sadistic, brtutal killers they were, mainly of defenseless women and children and old people, and how many millions of Russian soldiers they brutalized and stasrved to death, and worked to death.

They don't even have enough knowledge to be embarassed by their own stupidity and lack of knowledge of true history. they just go by the propogandistic lies they have been taught since the end of the sedond world war, when the wonderful west decided to pretend that they were the ones who save humanity, making even Western Euroeans laugh as they know the true score. and the real deal.

Disgusting.

It is not only disgusting but idiotic for the US marines to know so little about the NAZIs that they would adopt the symbol of the worst killers since Ghenghis Khan and his merry riders who killed every living creature in their path, including cats and dogs. that was the Nazi B*st*rds for you. And their symbol stinks to the highest heavons.

Bad Idea. The Marines should not identify with Nazi symbolism. They should guard the high reputation they have earned in their long history of Honor.

Sie sind ein KUCHENSCHABBE.

This IS in keeping with Obama's anti-Jeish Islamic/Nazi Agenda.
Obama a "Christian"? HORSESHIT!

Obama is a Muslim Supremacist.

What a disgrace!Regardless of what they wanted to represent,that symbol represents the Schultzstaffel and NOT anything else.

As an old school scout sniper graduate I wear my "SS" brand with pride. "SS" was NOT branded on my chest to represent or honor anything about Hitler or the other Nazis who were a destruction force to many in world. For us "SS" is a symbol of pride as we have completed the hardest school in the Marines and we are one of the very few who have completed the school. I used my training to the best of my ability and as a result gathered much intel and saved many lives during combat ops. As a civilian law enforcement officer this knowledge and training is still put to use as an active SWAT officer and sniper instructor. Don't be so quick to judge the "SS" when the bearer has earned the brand.

Germans did overrun the "Americans" during Battle of the Bulge and committed war crimes on POWs there. Do you forget that the United Kingdom/Canada and France and Free Poles also fought on the Western Front?
Hitler/Nazis killed a lot of civilians. But Stalin/Commies killed even more. Stalin killed MILLIONS of his own people as well as other nationalities.

To Stefanya. I largely agree with you. But we must remember, that it is often in the U.S. Army get didn't the best representatives of the American people.

To Proud Scout Sniper 8541. I respect the profession of a soldier. But I do not agree with you. Let me give you advice as a former soldier. Should not pay attention to the icons and labels and symbols. Should pay more attention to firing and tactical training. More training striking targets and carry out the combat mission. And do not show off stickers.

Sincerely, Leonid.

You aren't right. Of Soviet citizens were killed, more than 22 million people. Of these, 17 million civilians. Other victims of the Nazis were not a Soviet citizens.
