What in the name of skilfully poised ****?

Where the **** does that begin to be sensible?
A huge part of me wants to reject it as a photoshop, but it's altogether too crazy.

You just need to look at the history channel. There are more documentaries regarding the Nazis than all other topics combined. And those documentaries alternate between Hitler hate and Wehrmacht circle jerk.
Its no wonder many members of armed forces have the quiet adoration thing going.

And in other recent news, pissing on corpses is also in vogue with the marines:
That's old news. Amd quite honestly while I can see it's a publicity own goal, if I'd just shot a bunch of ****ers whose stated intention is to enslave a nation and systematically rape its intellectual and social life then I'd probably vomit on them.
But posing with SS flashes?

There's other possibilities. Maybe nobody told them what it meant.
Sadly I think that is the most likely possibility. At least no one explained the full history of the symbols.
Maybe someone also likes lightening bolts.

On the other hand, they had a lot of political bias and the unconditional "following orders" that has a rather bad schtick from the historical viewpoint..
Either way, with all of the political connotations, it was a rather stupid thing for the Sniper Scouts to do..

If those guys come home and they don't get their AD's 'cause the Pharmamedical Industrial Complex wants more moniez, expect some "Fun" lethal accidents, while President Romney is gonna sing "America f-yeah!" to re-patriotinize his sheeple.
Move on, citizen.

@Wals: justifying pissing on corpses puts you just below Papua New Guinea's cannibals on the civilization scale.
Any soldier of a twentieth century european nation state, back when people had an idea just what they were fighting for, even if they were going the wrong way about it would consider these men no better than dogs.
If they can't stomach the fight, they shouldn't be in it.

If you want something to get grumpy about Hadaitha being worthy of a 3 month suspended sentence would be a better target, because that required extended malice rather than being potentially a one off nervous reaction or some hick ignorami posing in front of 'cool' symbols.

It's not that US soldiers are urinating on corpses, it is how this is received at home by the press, and why there's such a widespread support for such behavior that worries me.
