"SS" can be used for a lot of things. Heck, in football the strong safety is called the "SS". Is the NFL secretly a Nazi regime?!?

So what do you want to do... Hang them, fine them?
I don't think so, it's a just a symbol people kill each other over.
You are twisting words, the SS flag is not our national flag.
I don't know if you have ever been to the US, but the Nazi's aren't commonly praised here. There are Neo-Nazi type gangs, mostly stemming from the prison system as a defense against blacks forming other gangs. There are Neo-Nazi's in America as well, there are also homosexuals, arabs, asians, polygamists, rocket scientists and idiots all the same, so what's your point? It's a free country and people generally do what they want, not all of them are smart or have everyone's best intentions in mind. There is racism in the world... surprise?
Look at the logo of metallica (the band), imagine what an S would look like in that font. About the same as the SS logo no? With jagged ends to the letters, there is no other way of writing an S in this type of font. Metallica is the music some of these soldiers grew up on more than likely and as rebellious kids they probably altered their hand writing style to be more aggressive. Therefore, they have an affinity for aggressive penmanship when it comes to fighting, war, etc
It's entirely possible no one knew about, or failed to say anything about the fact that the SS had the same logo

Respect to them, theve got serious go nads lol
I respect their skills, but there is no courage in being a sniper IMO.
Snipers are a vital tool for various purposes including special missions and protecting fellow servicemen, but I don't agree with the concept. But most of you will call me a peace loving hippie for not being down with the war mongering.edit on 9-2-2012 by Corruption Exposed because: grammer
