    Maybe not a photo that shook the world but surely a spot that changed the world.

    It's Westerplatte in Gdansk, Poland. This is where the first battle of world war 2 was held, and also the hometown of my parents.

    Trotsky, in death and in life.


    Il Duce, Mussolini, hanging upside down after being beaten severely by a mad mob.


    Lenin giving a fiery speech before a crowd in Moscow in 1920.


    The "Second October Revolution" of 1993. The Russian White House, home to parliament. Two years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the communist-majority legislature attempted to out Yeltsin using their lawful powers. Yeltsin attempted to out them using his. They refused to leave the White House. Thousands rioted and demonstrated in the streets in support of the Supreme Soviet and socialism, leading to the military under Yeltsin bringing troops and tanks into the streets. Firece street fighting went on for days. The confrontation ended when Yeltsin's tanks fired on the White House, giving it the damage seen there, and troops flooded the building.

    "According to government estimates, 187 people were killed and 437 wounded, while sources close to Russian communists put the death toll at as high as 2,000."


    The 1979 Iranian Revolution.


    A dead Che Guevara being displayed by military officers. His hands were cut off after this photo to be identified by fingerprint identification in Beunos Aires.

    This is the body of 14 year old Emmett Till. His body was found in river with an industrial fan tied around his neck three days after he was beaten and shot in the head for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi, 1955.

    This is what he looked like before he was killed btw.

    I'm all for casual racism, I've got black friends who call me cracker and I call them N-, we mess about all the time... But when you see what these people did to a kid, just for wolf whistling at a white woman, I mean that's a compliment... The kid was 14. The grown men beating and shooting this kid don't deserve the title of being "men" they're just overgrown children who's minds didn't mature past infant school.
    Makes me so angry.

    I expected to be inspired when I entered this thread (pictures of huge construction projects and human accomplishments in general). Instead, I left with a frown.

    To be honest, I'm still shaking from that picture on the first page That stare.. My god.

    Sorry it seems i was completely wrong earlier about the Yugoslav wars, i had a long talk with my father over the phone and i really picked his brain and here is how it goes. also more pictures of the conflict would be appreciated.

    First, Slovenia tries to break off of Yugoslavia, which causes the so called leader of Yugoslavia Serbia to mobilize its troops stationed in Slovenia, Slovenia in turn mobilizes their "home guard" there were tanks placed in roads and roadblocks established, total deaths were somewhere around 10-12.

    The the Serbian "Yugoslavia" troops, pulled out of Slovenia once their declaration of independence was declared. The troops pulled out to Croatia, where heavy fighting took place on the borders to Serbia, The Serbian troops pulled further out to the edge of the Serbian/Croatian border.

    From there Bosnia and Herzegovina decided that they were having a crisis with religion, basically in the city of Sarajevo a very heated situation was going on, there were Muslims, Catholics, Jews and Christians all living in the same city, mosques, synagogues, and churches all not 200m from each other, Serbia pulled all its "people" basically the Catholics and Christians out, and began shelling (very heavily) civilian districts of Muslims and Jews.

    This is just an outline of the major events, there was still thousands of war crimes committed, but this is the basics of the events that occurred.

    First television appearance of the president (Truman)

    Edited:



    The time Kennedy broke Nixon. People who listened to the debates on radio thought Nixon did the best answering, but on television, he was sweating like a pig due to the hot lights in the studio, making him look terrible - and so people watching the debate on television thought Nixon was a weak, sickly person to run for president.

    Not quite, the Bosniak Serbs were Orthodox Christians, your thinking of the Croat's who were Catholic. The Bosnian conflict was pretty much a three way bitter war between the three: Croatian Catholics Orthodox Serbs and Bosnian Muslims. It got very bloody.

    Yeah so bad in fact that even now Bosnia and Herzegovina has no solid government, it is governed by the UN with representatives from each religious/ regional faction. As you can imagine they don't ever come to any from of consensus because they always disagree with each other

    I asked serbians (serbians i knew wouldn't react in a bad way) about the massacres.

    I sensed a great deal of hatred against their own military when they talked about them.

    I can tell minor details about how they feel if i find anything relevant to provide information on.

    I know a Serb that fought in the Kosovo, he's pretty bitter about the whole situation, he was too young to have fought in Bosnia and the breakup, but he's really a nice guy and we both are in the same business which is how we got to know each other along with our similar history, I like to think I know a bit about the Balkans and I can safely say that it's the most messy bunch of conflicts I've ever studied.
