Well in that case, no fucks are given for that guy getting his brains blown out.What's weird (but good) about this thread is that I often look up more information on photos on here, even when I have seen them before and for some reason not bothered to. This is a prime example. Just found out that the guy who shot him in the famous image eventually fled to the US and lived there until his death. The US tried to deport him after it was deemed that he had committed a war crime, but Jimmy Carter stopped it, saying it was revisionism and the guy stayed in Virginia until his death in 1998.
Another interesting thing is that we look at such an image and immediately feel sympathy for the man being killed, and view the shooter as brutal, but it was a bloody, brutal war and apparently the man being killed had just been caught having himself killed South Vietnamese officer...only the difference being he then slit the throat of the officer's wife, 6 children and 80 year old mother.
Makes you see him a bit differently.
