    Okay this thread has gained a creepy morbid fascination with 9/11 jumpers. It's been 11 years let's talk about something else;

    It just looks like the Sten was manufactured with almost no costs at all. It makes sense.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I meant to say South. 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.

    According to escaping Temple members, children were given the drink first and families were told to lie down together.

    That's more or less the idea. The STEN was made to be as rudimentary as possible so it does end up looking like something some guy built in his garage.

    Genocide of Muslims - largest genocide since the Holocaust ( at least at the time, I don't know if Rwanda is higher than it. I doubt it. There was a 3 year siege of Sarajevo, where pretty much every Muslim in the city was killed.)

    Bar that, I know very litte, since it happened before any of us were born (or at least able to remember)

    My mother and father are both from Slovenia, and both were present in the country during the wars, ill share what i know

    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.
