More commonly known as 8mm Mauser. The ones in the picture are Turkish. You can see the “sickle & star” emblem on the headstamp in the third picture. Most of the surplus 8mm Mauser supply has dried up since very few if any nations still use the caliber for their military.
WTF?: Marines Unit Sport Nazi SS Flag in Afghanistan
The Marine Corps’ scout snipers in Afghanistan could probably use a safety stand-down. Just weeks after news broke that one elite unit of the forward-deployed Marines urinated on the corpses of dead Afghans, a photo has surfaced of another unit posing proudly beside a flag of the Nazi’s killer SS troops. The Marine Corps Times reports:
I think Hitler did some great things for the world. I do not agree with what he did, but I do give him recognition for what he did.
So many great things that nobody can think of even one!
Media is overrated.
Remember when Halloween was fun? Know that it still is? Yea. Remember when THE MEDIA NEVER BITCHED ABOUT COSTUMES BEING RACIST!? Those. Were. Good. Times. Now apparently dressing up as a Geisha or a Mexican is racist. Really people? Come on! Seriously! Pull your heads out of your arse and stop complaining about every little thing that you can twist the world into thinking is racist.
Oh, sorry, let me go as a zombie. Oh wait, I can’t, because that’s racist too. Well then let me go as a cute little dutch girl. Whaaa? Racist? How the hell is that racist!? I can’t go as a zombie nazi or a WW2 evacuee? Dude, whatever. Get off your high horse and let the kids have fun and be whatever they want. Seriously. Halloween is about creativity and having fun… and… getting lots of candy… So like, don’t interfere with one of the best holidays out there.
(I personally thought the costume was rather cute, and I thought it was nifty that it was kind of historical in a sense too. But apparently the media looooves to make a big deal out of anything and everything they can.)
Remember when we could all be racist and no one cared? Good times, gooooood tiiimes.
A neo-Nazi 1977 rally in Skokie, IL, a largely Jewish community, was the subject of a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision about the freedom to assemble. The high court ruled in favor of the neo-Nazis’ First Amendment protections — and yet, somehow, that didn’t seem to put an end to the extremists’ fears about a government conspiracy to deprive them of their liberties.
