Wait, are those British troops and surrendering Germans?
Nope. Those are German Troops and surrendering Polishmen.

Okay this thread has gained a creepy morbid fascination with 9/11 jumpers. It's been 11 years let's talk about something else; Like the progress of the beautiful new WTC [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/P5RQo.jpg[/thumb]

[QUOTE=ewitwins;35716174]Wait, are those British troops and surrendering Germans?[/QUOTE] That's a Bergmann MP-18 , not a Sten.

The Sten looks like something a grandpa would make in his garage compared to the Bergmann.
It just looks like the Sten was manufactured with almost no costs at all. It makes sense.

[QUOTE=Emperor Scorpious II;35717153][img]http://healthyinfluence.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/Jonestown-Massacre1.jpg[/img] Jonestown Massacre [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonestown[/url][/QUOTE] Largest mass-suicide in written history. Total fatality count, including the airport shooting? 909 people. Can you imagine that? 909 people, all killing themselves at the same time. Just dying where they stand. It explains why they're so neatly arranged: They died where they laid. I don't know why, but this image is less disturbing than that of violent death. I suppose it's because of the knowledge that they took their own lives.
a lot of them didn't want to, but they were too scared to flee and got forced to drink the poison.
[IMG]http://www.english.illinois.edu/maps/vietnam/vietphotos/18.jpg.jpg[/IMG] This one was likely already posted but it's still pretty important. It shows a South Vietnamese Sheriff executing a suspected member of the Viet Cong without trial. This scene was broadcast live across the US. It's fair to say it shocked many. [IMG]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/27/Lyndon_Johnson_Richard_Nixon_1968.jpg/470px-Lyndon_Johnson_Richard_Nixon_1968.jpg[/IMG] Another great photo from the same era. It shows LBJ and Nixon having a meeting before Nixon takes office. [IMG]http://bp1.blogger.com/_stuMq1GJnrA/SEcWsGGUKxI/AAAAAAAABhM/e3PRdf8Exl8/s400/lbj3.jpg[/IMG] And this just to show the "LBJ Treatment" in action. I always found this picture funny.

[/QUOTE] No, It's a South Vietnamese executing a Vietcong death squad leader who killed the cops and their families. Cropped out of the photo on the left is a mass grave where he executed civilians. The lie that is this photo seriously changed the way the world looked at the war.
And why would the North Vietnamese execute one of their own?

Sorry I made a mistake. The fact that it was broadcast on live TV is kind of shocking if you as me. Edit: The combined atrocities broadcast on live TV changed the public opinion on the war. This was just one of the more known ones along with the photograph of the burned girl running down a dirt road after a napalm strike.
[QUOTE=BloodYScar;35660051]Got any backstory for this one? I suppose palestinian?[/QUOTE] [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al-Durrah_incident[/url] They were hit most likely by Palestinian fire. you are probably good guy who want to see the responsible men pay for it, but you should realize that sometimes stuff are being staged to create the bad guy..
I seriously hope you're trolling
This thread makes me sad :( [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cc/WMAP_2003.png/800px-WMAP_2003.png[/img] Image of the distribution of the cosmic microwave background radiation 700,000 years after the Big Bang, generally assumed to have occurred about 13,700,000,000 years ago.
