    Hi guys I wanted to start a thread to present iconic photos that have had a lasting impact on you, I'll get the ball rolling:

    The world would never be the same.

    For me this pic shows everything that is both wrong AND right with humanity.

    In the face of brutality and subversion, the human spirit prevails.

    I don't know why this pic has stuck with me, possibly it is the dignity this soldier shows despite tears flowing down his cheeks and leaves us to wonder what horrors he has seen.

    I created a thread like this a long time ago..

    "images that shock the world"...something like that..

    It got closed because people posted very graphic images. lol.

    And watch for the ultra ultra ultra nationalist and trolls. lol

    Anyways, did you get this thread from Militaryphotos.net?
