Marine Sniper Unit Poses with SS logo

(please log in to view the image)

What can I say, US troops glorifying Einsatzgruppen. I'm for ending the war but personally, Afghanistan can keep this unit of Marine Snipers. Just take away their weapons and put targets on their uniforms.

Having Nazis in the military isn't a big deal?

Having that flag behind them in a picture makes them murderous neo-nazis?

Why else would you pose with that flag?

As a joke? Snipers are weird people, pretty much everyone in the military recognizes that.

You have to be weird to agree to lay in your own piss and shit for six days watching a rock in the middle of a scorching desert.

Because they're the Scout Ssnipers, and they're probably assholes who thought it would be funny.

*raises hand halfway*

I know for a fact there are, but most of them know better than to flaunt it/display it openly.

Saw a documentary on it...there are some cases where they find Swastikas hanging in barracks next to the US flag.

I'd be surprised to find a whole neo-Nazi unit.

To quote a commenter from the Daily News article this was featured: "The fact that they shoot people in the head from a mile away is OK, just don't let them stand near a flag that may or may not be linked to a flag another army used 70 years ago???"




Why is this even news worthy?

Because it's AMERICAN SOLDIERS identifying with the SS, a group who's only purpose was sabotage and extermination of populations. If these guys are snipers and are identifying with the SS they shouldn't allowed into normal society without some serious treatment. And if they actually are neonazis, then their only role in the military should be target practice.

is there a link that offers any insight into the motivation behind this picture? If this unit did in deed take this photo to display their nazi beliefs then i think there is certainly a moral contradiction and it would bother me. However, those soldiers give their time and lives to protect me so i would think they're atleast entitled to the same rights as any other American in believing what they choose. Although, until i read or hear evidence that directly connects this unit to practicing neo-nazi beliefs i have to give them the benefit of the doubt. That flag and their motivation could be inspired by or mean many different things. Personally, if anything i would imagine it's the units way at protesting the Goverment. They're probably trying to convey how imperialistic this war was. Either that or they simply see our Government crumbling under a similar type of corruption. That's the first impression i got when seeing that picture...,a simple protest.

You chastise a group for wiping people out, then turn around and recommend that a group be wiped out. Regardless of any actual crime or sin committed, mere association is enough to sentence them to death.


Oh excuse me, I have to go---my pot's calling the kettle black again. Page me the next time someone else is condemned for standing in front of a flag without a shred of exposition or context. It's not like they deserve the benefit of the doubt or anything, a chance to explain themselves. Freedom of speech/expression, innocent-until-proven-guilty, fair trial. That'd be democracy, and rational people withholding judgement, sentence, and execution until all facts are known, instead of looking at one still frame and making up your mind. But f*ck that! No sir, not in America. America don't allow no such thing. Neither did the Nazis or their SS goons. Not that that has anything to do with an American flag above a Nazi one. No sir.

I'm not overly concerned that (or if) they're Nazis, what they do in their own time is none of my concern, but they should be kicked out of the military for posing in their US uniforms and clearly displaying and glorifying a flag/symbol that contradicts US military ideals.
