If I had to add two more, I would’ve put the Berlin Wall falling, and maybe a picture of the Border Patrol agent pointing a gun at Elian Gonzalez. (Though the latter suggestion may be Americentrism on my part; for all I know it wasn’t a big deal to anyone outside the U.S. and Cuba).
The photo of the vulture waiting for the little child to die of starvation breaks my heart.
Hey, the Iwo Jima's a fake, but it still shook the nation
It was a re-enactment, not a fake. They raised it once, then again for the photo.
I think you should give some background to each picture in order to fully get across the significance. Also, too many 9/11 shots in my opinion.
That Vietnamese (Nguyen Van Lem) indeed shot in the head by Nguyen Ngoc Loan. The man who shot him was a South Vietnamese general at the time who later repatriated to the USA after the war. Accordingly, he ran a pizzeria in the US. I wonder if he was ever tried in the US courts for a war crime committed. Anyway, when the Americans discovered his identity, his pizza shop closed down. He later died of cancer.
the sad thing is a dont know a lot of the pictures up there it would have been nice for a mini background
You know all of those are copywrite, right? Putting your label on them is illegal, since you’re in effect claiming ownership of copywrited works.
Second time I’ve been sent to this site today, and it’s the second time I’ve seen blatant violations of copywrite. Shame, because this’d be a good article, otherwise.
WOW. Evil Taco you suck. Let us enjoy this great website.

Mr. Loan was not a General, but a senior ranking police officer. Mr. Lem was a Viet Cong infiltrator. It was the 1968 ‘Tet’ Communist Offensive.
Col. Loan had just found the remains of his wife and children, who had been murdered by Mr. Lem.
The media tried to cover that part up.
Not a fake. Staged. Two different things. It was taken at Iwo Jima at the close of fighting but was a backup shot to the original.
One pic here also WTF?
copyright, if you are to speak intelligently, please do so correctly.
Rosenthal’s photo at Iwo Jima was neither faked nor staged. It was however the second time a flag had been raised over Suribachi, which Rosenthal made no bones about admitting. The original flag was replaced, as it was to small to be seen from the beach.
