The Marines have been banned from wearing uniforms off base for years, mostly as a precaution to this very reason. It was always just a matter of time before the other services followed.
Expect to see this implemented Stateside soon as well.

They better start having our service members and even tourists start speaking the native language too because anyone who speaks English in a foreign country will become the next targets just as easily. Only Britain, The USA and Australia and I think South Africa have English as their native languages. Makes it easy to target even without uniforms!
There maybe other countries that have English as the native tongue but I can't think of them right now!

I have a hard time imagining the French being ignorant enough to compare the US military to Nazis. Maybe some of the youth think that, especially the immigrants, but the idea that the people that lived under Nazi occupation would call Americans Nazis is almost laughable. The relatives I have who live there have never made that comparison, they arn't pro American, but they don't call us Nazis either. They call us Imperialists. I guess calling us imperialist pigs isn't good enough for the post war generation though.
Sometimes the truth hurts and the truth is you don't have to be gassing Jews in concentration camps to be Fascists.
To compare our penal system to the Nazi penal system is probably one of the most blatantly absurd comparisons I have ever seen. Our prisoners sit around watching tv, eating decent food, get paid college educations, and run organized crime operations. I can't stress how absolutely ludicrous that comparison is.
