Hey b, what about an Historical Photo thread ?
He was even more badass than that.
I know the first one is Tiananmen square, but can we add context to other pics? Just curious about some of them, and cool idea for thread.
The gas mask picture is from a japanese island, where a volcano spew volcanic acid into the air.
The populace always carry gas masks, although they probably don't wear them all the time.
here's some culture for the uncultured plebs
1884 Construction of The Statue of Liberty in Paris
sunk by a U-Boat
A British EOD technician approaches a car bomb during The Troubles in Ireland (1968 - 1998)
The people on the front more than likely died from the force of the explosion. It probably just turned their brains to mush, a quick and painless death for such a horrific circumstance.
Take it back to facebook, cunt.
call the police
Nigger what? Its sometime between ww1-ww2 in soviet russia, look at the hats, look at the soviet stars, look at the maxim(i think thats the name of the machinegun), look at the end of flag poles(soviets had those little brass things on the end) AND look at the ZiS truck... Le maymays need more history classes, smh
holy shit i was laughing on the inside as it was capsizing but then the god damn explosion. god damn
Bud Dwyer on air suicide
IED was disarmed before the call to the phone to detonate it was made
Looks like a bomb detonator using a phone as a remote. They called it but it didn't go off. The missed call was some fucker trying to kill people.
California Redwoods. You can't cut em down anymore
Step 1) Don't piss of Stalin
Step 2) Don't be Yezhov
I still find it impressive how that was done well before any form of computer-based image manipulation. How exactly is/was it done? IIRC you pin-prick photos don't you?

That's fake since Hitler sued for peace at the League of nations the whole of October and was told a firm "no, you will have war" by Britain and France. In fact France invaded Germany before Germany invaded France...look it up.
Also, Ghandi would never side with the British who he hated very much.
Bump for moar
It's funny how everyone who is against China turns this into "how brave he was". That just shows the restraint of the soldiers, not the bravery of the idiot doing this. If they wanted, they could've squashed him like a bug and nothing would've happened except a road cleaner washing the asphalt of his squidgey remains.
I'm off to class
I have no interest in getting into an online argument, but the LEague of Nations let the invasion of austria go, it was after he invaded Poland that they decided to go to war.
But I do not have any knowledge of whether the letter is real or not.
Dont be silly.
There was no Photoshop back in the days...
United States of America's final retreat after the defeat at the hands of the Vietnamese militia: Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese army signalling the end of the disastarous war of Vietnam where American would be soundly defeated by an inferior force largely made up of civilians and so culminating in a humiliating defeat foe the USA and one which would be impossible to live down for the rest of their history. lel
pic related: the embarassing scramble for the choppers from the American embassy in Saigon before it was overun and occupied by Viet Kong and North Vietnam communist forces.
I see very little WW2
It's a historical, you fucking nigger.
Yazidi blonde child.
The letter is real you idiot (first post)
Doesnt matter who declared war on who, Gandhi did write that letter and he did support the United Kingdom through both world wars. He didnt hate the british, he just didnt like their occupation of India.
It doesn't work. You only put "an" when it is a vowel sound after it. An orange. A hospital.
Oh, sweet child of summer, Winter is Coming.
You obviously know shit about history. The League of Nations did not decide to go to war, idiot. Countries decided independently. So Britain and France declared war in September because of the invasion of Poland. Germany went to the League of Nations in October to sure for peace.
Do you even know what "sue for peace" means? It means getting the League of Nations to declare a war not to the advantage of peace and so unlawful. But the League of Nations being a puppet of Britain and USA like the UN today, said "no". And the rest is history...
And yeah the Ghandi letter is fake since also he gave a fuck about Europe and especially Britain. I'm almost inclined to think he thought Britain neing bombed by Germany was in some way "karma" for all the attrocities Britain did in India... Oh and Ghandi went on a peace march fully knowing and ready for a violent struggle if id didn't succeed in order to kick the British out. Something which isn't often quoted but tru nonetheless. Revisionist history..don't you just love it?
Other than photoshopping a historical photo, can I ask why this is creating such venomous reactions? Feel like that horse thing represents something that /b/ hates and I am unfamiliar with
Famous doctored Buchenwald photo.
Idk why "an historian" works, I don't remember how it was explained. I do remember that is has something to do with the way some people pronounce the 'H'. Some pronounce it as a hard 'H' while some pronounce it as a soft 'H'. Then they fuck up even more and write/type "an historian" so much it becomes relatively acceptable.
Newfag pls go. You obviously haven't been on /b/ over the summer, it's MUCH worse than the any other season(s) of the year.
I hate it when people say "an historic". You don't sound smart you pretentious little fucks. It's a hard "h", idiot. You wouldn't "an hill" or "an hen". Get out of your own ass. Just because there are enough of you that it's accepted doesn't mean it makes any fucking sense, much less that it's more correct.
>The letter is real you idiot (first post)
And you have proof? Show it cunt or shudup.
India didn't hate the British? HAHAHAHAHHAHA. Nah it's not like the British did attrocities and war crimes in India or anything. Ghandi and all the Indians of that tiume HATED AND WERE READY TO KILL BRITISH.
The peace march was just a prelude to an armed conflict. Ghandi was ready to lead an armed rebellion to make India independent if the peace march did not work. Ghandi said this himself and sorry but secretly I bet Ghandi wanted Germany to win the war because of all the horrible things Britain did in India...
Keep on making up your own history CUNT FACE.
The best monarchs of all time including my personal favourite: Kaiser Wilhelm II
The USA was not part of the LEague of Nations, you angry and foolish little man. Wilson championed the idea, but Congress rejected it. And I am aware the leage of nations was made up of seperate nations, but I didn't feel like writing out France and Britain, and mistakenly assumed you would be able to make the conection in your head. But, I do promise, this is the last response I will make to you, cause I refuse to argue online, so enjoy the time you take to rage against no one and nothing in your next post, it will go unread, I assure you.
Russians executing a Finnish spy infiltrated in the Soviet Union i.e this happened on Russian soil.
Usual practice to immediately execute any spy during WW2.
>Implying Russians were any more evil than the americans or british who also executed spies...of course, now americans torture them first at Guantanamo Bay

Because that's how it works.. It's not cod you fucktard
Mankind is apparently better than what you choose to believe
don't mind david playing some soccer
this thread needs more nam
So basically this
>Mankind is apparently better than what you choose to believe
Yes as is apparent with ISIS, wars everywhere, Guantanamo Bay, huge poverty in every country, corrupt politicians commonplace, bursting prison populations, crime figures through the roof. Oh yeah and lost not even mention the 100 million killed in two world wars. And nukes designed to kill every living thing on Earth.
Or maybe you're just a fantasist prick living in your own dream world?
That's the most retarded comment I have ever read. Jeeez. "More sons coming back home". hahahahahaha How could the Vietnamese have "less sons coming back home" when they were lerady home...? "Vietnam War" ring a bell?
I'm literally laughing...
Either that's the worst bate ever or your so dense that light bends around you.
Either way you're opinion is not valid
You have a fine taste then.
This is my current one. The text is a bit corny I admit, but it do so perfectly set the mood for a nice game of Europa Universalis
How can it be photoshopped if there was no photoshop around WWII
/bros Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
And this guy is clearly a fucking 9th dan, shaolin monk of an idiot.
Pic likely related
>>implying the Japs didn't to the same thing
Yes. But not on that scale. The scale America did it was very comparable to anything Hitler did.
As a famous British politician said after the war: "If we'd have lost the war, we would be the ones on trial for war crimes". Hey he admitted it so you can fuck off trying to justify killing nearly half a million elderly men, women and children who just wanted to live their lives. Two wrongs don't make a right...especially when you went all out trying to be the "good guys" fighting for "freedom and humanity" against the "evil Nazis/Fascists".
America still remains as the only nation to use nukes on another country and on the civilians population to boot.
Here's a fact which the USA gov hides when it can. The two atom bombs were both detonated to coincide with the Japanese children going to school so they would be out in the open = max casualties.
You targetted the school children. FUCKING SHAME ON YOU. Such a "good" nation...FUCK OFF.
Rumored to be the leader of the forces that had been attacking Saigon all morning, leading to that other famous picture of the naked little girl running with her skin burned off.
Lol, dude, if you're going to get mad and call someone a moron, know what you're talking about first. It was constructed in France and given to the US as a gift.
Thanks for this, anon
No. The Japs invaded China and slaughtered tens of thousands of civilians. They would literally either assimilate or exterminate whenever they came acrossed civis. What the US did is miniscule compared to what the Japs themselves did. Google: Rape of Nanking.
But to be fair..everyone was evil in WW2. Just that pisses me off when the Allies try to be the "good guys". Every major nation who fought in WW2 was responsible for war crimes..whether on a big scale or not.
So yeah not just targetting USA. Britain had Dresden and the other psycho policies of the mass-murderer "Bomber Harris". Japanese had Nanking and Burma and basically everywhere they went... Germany, it's obvious. Russia has Berlin mass rape and murder.
So yeah no good guys in WW2. It was a shitty war...hope we learned the lesson.
Whilst partly true, the picture of girl running, Phan Thị Kim Phúc, happened due to the misguided napalm attack months before this was taken I believe.
The human race.
Are you kidding me?
Leaving out the part where the NVA had already signed a peace treaty in Paris and the war was over. The US was funding the South Vietnamese government to prevent future attacks.
With the departure of Nixon and the democrat victory the following November, the first thing the leftists did was cancel that funding. President Ford begged them not to, but they did anyway, just to be able to say I told you so and blame republicans. As a direct result, the NVA resumed the attack, Saigon fell, Cambodia and Laos followed like dominoes, and 2-5 million innocent civilians were slaughtered.
TLDR; Go fuck yourself, communist.
Transfer of military personnel before signing of capitulation of Japan on either Iowa or Missouri.

>No. The Japs invaded China and slaughtered tens of thousands of civilians.
That's bullshit. Apart from Nanking which is documented, you have no proof. Otherwise why is there just Nanking as an example?
It was a few Japanese terror units just like Grmany had with the Waffen SS.
Don't inflate the figures to try to justify the 500,000 Japanese civilians killed by the USA. Ok?
As I said, NO country was innocent to whatever scale, some more some less..I mean the Tokyo firebombing claimed 200,000 lives just in one night...!
Bunkers for mobile (nuclear) missile launchers in Britain. These were only operational for a couple of years.
Fuck I'm retarded
He did it so his family could get his pension as he died in office while being investigated on bribery charges. A lot of people think he was even innocent of that. Modern day samurai mang. ;_;
>But America gained literally nothing from the war, it would have been a he'll of a lot cheaper to just not go into the war in the first place
Double lel. 'MURICA gained hell of a lot out of WWII: both money and power.
Not yet, they're protected now. Some of the trees are a few thousand years old. That means they'd have been alive during the time of Jesus (supposedly).
Nope. 800 men died. The ship had a total, off the top of me head, complement of 1,300 because it was 1st world war vintage. The newer British battlships had around 1,500. HMS Hood was one and lost nearly everyone when it went down, 1,500 dead. So yeah slight exageration on your part...
no you are Butt-mad and super nigger.
America was the good guy
you are looking at 1945 nukes with todays faggot colored glasses on
America saved world and saved lives with nukes
lube up you anus with your tears
