so you couldn't disprove anything, But hey if america have these links then it's perfectly accetable for islamic groups to idoloize Hitler right. you admitted to knowing of the links between iran and germany and stated the OP made an interesting point, yet you are unable to discuss it. Why post in a thread about a subject you refuse to speak about.
See the topic of the thread, is it possible for you to stick to it, not even for one post. come on pretty please.edit on 15-2-2012 by Thetawave because: .edit on 15-2-2012 by Thetawave because: .
It's quite ironic that the OP has a picture of a crusader as his display pic.
So, I'm confused. You want us to stop making connections between the USA and Nazism and instead deflect our attention towards Iran (nominated for Best Boogeyman of the Year Award).
Are you flat out denying the American links with Nazism? Believe me there's a lot of stuff on that.
All of the connections you elude to happened long before these young Marines were born!

Israel’s enemies are US enemies.
Your wrong here Israel's enemies are Israel's enemies. Israel isn't worth one American life much less going to war over.
Lets try to be mature here. This isn't a rant thread, or fox news. We have hire standards here on ATS...

So basically your arguments can be used both ways.
Both Iran and the United States had tentative or limited connections to the Nazis neither of which were important in the long run.

The swastika is an ancient symbol that has been used for over 3,000 years. (That even predates the ancient Egyptian symbol, the Ankh!) Artifacts such as pottery and coins from ancient Troy show that the swastika was a commonly used symbol as far back as 1000 BCE.
During the following thousand years, the image of the swastika was used by many cultures around the world, including in China, Japan, India, and southern Europe. By the Middle Ages, the swastika was a well known, if not commonly used, symbol but was called by many different names:
* China - wan
* England - fylfot
* Germany - Hakenkreuz
* Greece - tetraskelion and gammadion
* India - swastika
Though it is not known for exactly how long, Native Americans also have long used the symbol of the swastika.
I think you should have spent more time researching your post , you have only scratched the surface to make your shallow point regarding Iran, you will see elements of what you would call nazi traits all the way back to the romans and beyond , the eagle that Hitler used on insignia .............Roman. I know what you are trying to point out regarding the USA and Iran , but a more researched post would have given your views more gravitas.
