Apparently SNKP thought video gamers in the USA couldn't take fatalities.
Apparently they also thought that having cartoon samurai decapitate one another would make people think of a person getting killed in Iraq....
To me its as absurd as being worried that a new sequel to "1942" would make people start thinking about Pearl Harbor, or that playing "KOF" will make them similarly think about street violence.
I thought this quote from the SSVS thread was quite good:

Does SNKP have any right to make a value judgment for you?
Fatalities were a material part of what consumers expected from their purchase. After advertising fatalities, should SSVS owners have a right to return the game to SNKP for falsely advertising something that the buyers relied on in forking over several hundred dollar?
Should SNKP make some kind of statement to its loyal fans who, after years and thousands of dollars in devotion, were insulted in such a way?
