Yes those are upsetting. Not that they were made known, but that it happened at all. Never saw those either.

Tazz, my dad was also in Korea. A grenade blew up in his face but he turned out all right after a lot of hospitalization. I couldn't tell you what he did there offhand even though he's told me many times. How about yours??

Agreed. I just think it sucks to see some guy grabbing his zipper with his hand on an old woman. Or any woman! But I know what you mean.



Oh I do have a really great photo that without it we wouldn't have photos. I'll try to find it


Is it that first French photo of the roof and pigeon house?? :) I almost posted that.

This will be a test to see how censored the net is

try to find the other pics of guantanamo bay especially the one that is depicting naked men piled on top of each other and that little bitch and bitchettes (yes I'll call the other soldiers that) leaning on them


Those weren't done at guatanamo, those where done at the Abu Ghraid prison in Iraq.

It is, he used the spinning wheel ina lot of his teachings. It became the sign of the Indian independance movement.

Apparently he wouldn't let the photograph be taken untilthe photographer learnt to spin themselves.

That's interesting. I didn't know that. That's what's so cool about coming here- I am always learning something new!

What is the photo of the woman at the gate representing? Sorry for all the questions but I haven't seen a lot of these photos. :o

That's a suffragette in what turned out to be a riot in London. The suffragettes wanted the right to vote and were the seed of political feminism.

They were quite something.

George Patton's troops when they liberated the Buchenwald concentration camp. Forty-three thousand people had been murdered there. Patton was so outraged he ordered his men to march German civilians through the camp so they could see with their own eyes what their nation had wrought.

Iwo Jima Marines raise US flag











SAIGON, South Vietnam — South Vietnamese National Police Chief Brig. Gen. Nguyen Ngoc Loan executes a Viet Cong officer with a shot to the head, one of the most chilling images of the Vietnam War. Photographer Eddie Adams, who won a Pulitzer Prize for this photograph, said the execution was justified, because the Viet Cong officer had killed eight South Vietnamese. The furor created by this 1968 image destroyed Loan's life. He fled South Vietnam in 1975, the year the communists overran the country, and moved to Virginia, where he opened a restaurant. He died in 1998 at age 67. Loan 'was a hero,' Adams said when he died. 'America should be crying. I just hate to see him go this way, without people knowing anything about him.'









The body of a U.S. serviceman is dragged with ropes through the dusty streets of war-torn Mogadishu, Somalia, on Oct. 4, 1993. The dead soldier was one of five Americans killed during the first day of a major U.N. assault on warlord Mohamed Farah Aidid's military command.

Haunted by the horrific images from Sudan, Carter committed suicide in 1994 soon after receiving an award for the photo.

"Four civilian contractors were killed in the Iraqi city of Fallujah Wednesday in an attack that left their vehicles in flames, and afterwards at least three of the burned bodies were mutilated, dragged through the streets and suspended from a bridge while a group of Iraqis danced in the streets."

This photo features a 21-week-old human fetus (Baby Samuel), still inside his mother's uterus (womb). The photo was taken during an operation (Vanderbilt Univ, 1999) to correct spina bifida, a congenital condition. "Fetus" is a Latin word meaning "offspring" or "young one".

The photo is perhaps the most amazing of the Twentieth Century; it is certainly the most curious. At first glance, the viewer may be disorientated and even uncomfortable at the sight of an exposed womb partially removed from a mother during an operation. Once the initial shock wears off, take a closer look toward the center of the photo and you will witness a miracle of life: the tiny hand of a 21-week-old fetus (Latin for baby) appears through a tiny slit in the womb; the surgeon, Dr. Joseph Bruner, who is about to perform a delicate operation, "instinctively took his hand." The fetus and Dr. Bruner are "holding hands."

At first glance...

The tiny hand belongs to 21-week-old Samuel Armas. He was delivered from the womb on December 2, 1999 (see update).



Note: Babies of this age can be legally aborted in most states.

Tear down this wall"









“General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Two years later, Gorbachev allowed Berliners to destroy the wall, and the Soviet Union collapsed soon afterward. Although there is some disagreement over how much influence, if any, Reagan's words had on the destruction of the wall, the speech is remembered as one of the finest in world history.

Yes I did. I don't mean the pictures weren't awful by any means. It's just that I've seen people rendered far worse than what those photos show so I'm not that shocked. But the blood, my gosh it looks just like tire tracks across the floor!

Well, the one with the dog (that sorta looks like a bear) was also upsetting.
