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

This is my favorite thread.

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.
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.
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.
Another great photo from the same era. It shows LBJ and Nixon having a meeting before Nixon takes office.
And this just to show the "LBJ Treatment" in action. I always found this picture funny.
And why would the North Vietnamese execute one of their own?
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.
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 :(
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.
This one is pretty well known too: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._rez_edit1.jpg
Let's have a break from all the bodies, eh?
Don't really know anything about it, but it really caught my attention. I'm not sure if its the AK47 or the blue boots and fairy wings.
Most disturbing part is at 4:25. That scream sends chills down my spine every time I hear it.
Any stuff from the Yugoslavia conflict and Kosovo war? I've never really understood what was going on in those wars.
Bar that, I know very litte, since it happened before any of us were born (or at least able to remember)
Yugoslavia was a communist or socialist country run by a dictator Titto. Slovenia was the first country to break off of Yugoslavia, and in turn Serbia (which was the said "boss" of Yugoslavia) mobilized troops to try and reclaim Slovenia and force them back into Yugoslavia, In-turn Slovenia put up anti tank barricades and put some soldiers on the streets for a war that lasted all but 3 days with 2 or 4 deaths total. Serbia was then called to pull out because of growing tensions with religious groups in Serbia, and Herzegovina, so Serbia pulled its army out and into Croatia, that is about the extent of what i really know, i used to know more but its been a while since my dad told me about it ill ask him and post more later,
However I know after Slovenia left there were thousands of killings all over Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and tremendous war crimes such as a said the Yellow House Case where 100-300 Serbs were kidnapped and their organs were stolen (primarily kidneys and livers)
And fun fact: My dad played tennis with a retired Serbian general who defected to Slovenia in support of their cause.
General Mladic comforting a boy, who his forces later killed.
I completely forgot he was arrested in 2011! So much happened in that year, you forget important stuff like that.
