...when there's so many of them you can't even cross the street on you way to work without seeing at least 4 riding in a pack...

Yes.... And thousands were massacred there. Unarmed civilians moved down with automatic rifle fire.

Sorry to be a party-pooper, but that pic is certainly dis-tastefull to use for a joke.  :angry:

If I recall correctly both his identity and subsequent fate are uncertain and there is no firm evidence whether he is still alive and no evidence that he was killed. If he has since died then that is a shame for his family and friends but has little or no bearing on the incident.

I thought the OP was very funny in context of WOT
:)

Edit: this post was in response to Blownfuse's original statement which it looks like has since been edited

Well, gotta remember while it was shocking to us older types, allot of players have no idea of how an important event that was. Like wise I doubt many of our younger players remember some of the stuff on the news about Bosnia or the Tokyo Sarin gas attacks. So flying off the handle isn't really called for.

Re-education of these whipper-snappers is though.

I don´t think I "flew off the handle". I stated that I find it extremely bad taste, to use a pic, from that "event" in history, as basis for a joke. And I stand by it.

I, for one, think that history is very important. If you don´t read up on events in history, or make jokes of the history, you are not learning from mistakes been made. Thus these mistakes can be made again. It is only human to fail, but not learning from failure, is just stupidity.

Hmm... And playing WoT, I get a feeling that "learning from mistakes", is scarely (spellcheck?) close to becoming a lost skill. That does not bode well, for my childrens future...

:Smile_honoring:

Ps. And regarding the man in pic, being killed or not, there are only rumours. That´s why I corrected post, to only state proven facts. Rumours are the devil ! Like the rumour I heard in here, that EU community team, would make being a EU server player, a much better experience. Don´t hope anyone believed that one....

Peace, out.

i see no reason to pile up a drama.  there wasn't even a joke. i stated i just noticed the type-59s after seeing that image million times, end of story. if you can deal with it, good. if you don't, well... sorry to hurt your feelings, but there isn't a joke, not even a bad one. now please do the iper-sensible man somewherelse.

The tank survived 2 world wars and is still being bought across the world today because of its reliability.


Bad thing however its massively outdated the tank is cannon fodder basically.

a sad day in history indeed, at the same time inspiring though that some people have the courage to risk their lives to stand up for their rights and freedom!
