Well to be fair, I'm a history major specializing in military history and I can honestly say that i've never seen that ss flag. Didn't even know they had their own flag actually, I thought all Nazi's waved the Swastika around. I could certainly understand how they didn't know what it was.
Kinda reminds me more of one of the special forces designs more than anything to do with Nazi's.

Regardless why America is killing people in the middle east but systematically killing any group of people could be construed in the same light. What is worse is how it is being justified in this day and age.
IF you want the terrorists then go after them, Leave ordinary people out of it, one civilian death is to many.

If they really dont know what an SS flag is then I feel sorry for Americans and the level of education they get.

This is yet and another military tradition that has been ruined by bleeding heart liberals crying over something they don't understand and assigning meaning to someone else's symbol. In the name of being PC the Marine Corps has now banned the symbol for scout snipers that have been used since the 1970s that's over 40 years.
Next these pansies are going to have us changer helmets because they look like the old German ones. What else is next?
They probably knew what it used to mean but they like the design and it signified what they were scout snipers. These soldiers are not going to get in trouble and they shouldn't I am sure that this insignia is been used by their unit in every scout sniper unit since their inception.
