It's an Eastern Guard going West right? Berlin Wall Jumper?

[QUOTE=NielsGade;35607681][IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Wq9sT.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] [QUOTE=madnath619;35608559]I just know I will be showered in dumb ratings, but I have never exactly known the full story behind the image. Anybody care to explain please?[/QUOTE] The photo was by Eddie Adams, who won a Pulitzer Prize for it. He regretted taking the photograph until his death in 2004. South Vietnamese General Ngygen Ngoc Loan is the man firing the shot. Loan was Chief of Police at the time. He aided in building hospitals, giving to orphans, and in general, humanitarian aid. The man being shot was a leader of a Viet Cong squad tasked with killing police. "The man Loan shot had been caught near a ditch containing 34 murdered men, women and children, among them were the wife and six children of one of Loan's closest friends (the six murdered kids were also Loan's godchildren)." The photo was taken out of context. People were so caught up in the horror of it, they blamed Loan. After immigrating to America and taking an assumed identity to keep himself unknown to the public, he ran a pizza parlor. When he was discovered, he received many numerous death threats and was forced to close his business.

[B]On a rainy April 17, 1982, Queen Elizabeth II in her right as the Queen of Canada signs the Constitution Act, 1982 into law. The Prime Minister is Pierre Trudeau, and the Justice Minister is the future PM Jean Chretien. Noted for her absense is British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.[/B] [t]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/f7/Const-proc.png[/t] [B]At the height of the October Crisis, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau enacts the [I]War Measures Act[/I] to combat the FLQ after the abduction of Quebec's Minister of Labour Pierre Laporte and the British Trade Commisioner James Cross. On October 13th, Trudeau is interviewed at Parliament Hill and delivers his famous [I]"Just watch me."[/I][/B] [video=youtube;XfUq9b1XTa0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfUq9b1XTa0[/video] Occasionally, even liberal democracies call out the troops. Although the use of the war Measures Act is seriously deplored by everyone now, I... actually think Trudeau did the right thing. You gotta do what you gotta do.

[QUOTE=Amerigo;35617431]Oh Jesus, that kid in the bottom left, in the water, is he sitting up, still alive? Good God...[/QUOTE] What's the story behind this?
[QUOTE=Ashtwat;35617545]What's the story behind this?[/QUOTE] That's Anders Behring Breivik on the small island of Utoya in Norway. He went on the island posing as a police officer and shot 69 people, most of them children.
Oh god, I didn't know there were pictures of it...
