    A very sorry comment.
    LOL, because the SS did so many positive things in France? What would Kurt Meyer do? Hmmmm.....

    1. Prior to 7 June 1944, Meyer had incited troops under his command to deny quarter to surrendering Allied soldiers.
    2. On or around 7 June 1944, Meyer was responsible for his troops killing twenty-three prisoners of war at Buron and Authie.
    3. On or around 8 June 1944, Meyer ordered his troops to kill seven prisoners of war at his headquarters at the Abbaye Ardenne.
    4. On or around 8 June 1944, Meyer was responsible for his troops killing seven prisoners of war, as above.
    5. On or around 8 June 1944, Meyer was responsible for his troops killing eleven prisoners of war, as above.

    Just sayin...

    Yes,without turning this into some 'derailed' thread Paul...I DO know what it's like to lose family going over there to bail them out. Mine was NOT a sorry statement. Go visit the cemeteries. You have lots of debate about what is indeed sorry. Ron

    What exactly is the problem here? Is someone who lives in a former harshly occupied country supposed to feel sympathy for one of the soldiers who had Done the harsh occupying being taken prisoner?? What sense is there in that? Why is there even a debate on this? This is ridiculous.
