    No, it was the Yugoslav war, that caused the break up of Yugoslavia into the independent countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. My parents are both from Slovenia so i find anything related to this war incredibly interesting,

    Also ill post more of my 9/11 experience in a bit.

    The pictures of the jumpers made me cringe though.

    Don't really want to bring more death and destruction into this thread, but since today is the memorial for the Armenian Genocide, I feel that it is necessary.

    it's human nature to fear those that are different from yourself and those you are constantly around
    skin color just happens to be one of the many ways people can be different
    you can't just "overcome" primal instinct
    you can suppress it, but you can't overcome it without evolving past it

    If it weren't for them the city would be trashed, businesses would be looted and entire streets vandalised and damaged, cars too. They are not there to stop change they are just there to ensure that at the end of the day there's still a city left to live in and the law is obeyed.

    On this day in 1849, a mob of angry English Canadians burned down the Parliament Building in Montreal in response to the signing into law of the Rebellion Losses Bill, which sought to compensate French Canadians who had lost their homes and businesses during the Revolt of 1837.


    Do paintings count for this thread? I'll stop posting them if they don't, but it leaves out quite a lot of stuff.

    April 25, 1974. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnation_Revolution

    The day Portuguese military rose up against the dictatorship present in portugal since the 20's. (There were no deaths in this peaceful coup d'etat)

    It was called the Revolution of the Carnations "Revolução dos Cravos".


















    And finally the musics that launched the coup d'etat on the radio:

    First:

    Second:


    One of the most important figures in the revolutionary movement(music):
    Zeca Afonso: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeca_Afonso
    Death came to the street a day like this
    In that nameless place for any purpose

    A crimson drop falls on the sidewalk
    And a river of blood pours out of an open chest

    The wind that occurs in the stalks of the sugar canes
    And the scythe of a reaper of Portugal

    And the sound of the anvil like a clarion from the sky
    They go everywhere telling the painter died

    Your blood, Painter, another death equally claimed
    Only an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth is worth

    To the murderous law, To the death that killed you
    Your body belongs to the earth that once you embraced

    Here we say a tooth for a tooth
    Because the one who laughs at the end is the one who laughs the best (poor translation here)

    At the bend of the road there are holes made ​​on the ground
    And in each and every one of them the roses of a nation shall rise



    And Priest Fanhais(music) A Portuguese priest that was actively against the regime and openly spoke about it in his sermons:
    We see, hear and read
    We can not ignore
    We see, hear and read
    We can not ignore

    We see, hear and read
    Reports of hunger
    The path of injustice
    The language of terror

    The Hiroshima bomb
    Shame on us all
    Reduced to ashes
    The flesh of children

    D'Africa and Vietnam
    Go up the lamentation
    People destroyed
    People torn

    Nothing can erase
    The concert of screams
    Our time is
    sin organized



    And that is all.

    Today is a very happy day here in Portugal.

    Wikipedia posted:
    Guerrillero Heroico (English: "Heroic Guerrilla Fighter") is an iconic photo of Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara wearing his black beret taken by Alberto Korda. It was taken on March 5, 1960, in Havana, Cuba, at a memorial service for victims of the La Coubre explosion and by the end of the 1960s turned the charismatic and controversial leader into a cultural icon. Korda has said that at the moment he shot the picture, he was drawn to Guevara's facial expression, which showed "absolute implacability" as well as anger and pain. Years later, Korda would say that the photo showed Che's firm and stoic character. Guevara was 31 at the time the photo was taken.


    Wikipedia posted:
    First Lieutenant Baldomero Lopez, USMC, leads the 3rd Platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines over the seawall on the northern side of Red Beach, as the second assault wave lands, 15 September 1950, during the Incheon invasion. Wooden scaling ladders are in use to facilitate disembarkation from the LCVP that brought these men to the shore. Lt. Lopez was killed in action within a few minutes while assaulting a North Korean bunker.

    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?
    The man on the left is a South Vietnamese officer in either the military or the city police. The man being shot is Viet Cong. before this picture was taken, the man on the right and other VC rounded up civilians and began exterminating them into a mass grave they dug. The soldiers here caught him and the man on the left executed the VC guerilla.
