US Soldiers pose with a Nazi SS flag in Afghanistan.
No disciplinary action will be taken against the Marines, because apparently there was no malicious intent.
According to Maj. Gabrielle Chapin, a spokeswoman at Camp Pendleton, Calif. ” The Marines mistakenly believed the “SS” in the shape of white lightning bolts on the blue flag were a nod to sniper scouts – not members of Adolf Hitler’s special unit that murdered millions of Jews, gypsies and others.”
An easy mistake indeed – Seems plausible, considering the US Marines are almost always mistakenly believing innocent Afghani’s to be terrorists and killing them. Or is that still considered as collateral damage?
