These two pictures invoked outcry from every Progressive and Liberal leaning mind in America, and was used as propaganda to kill American’s support for the Vietnam War.
Gen. Nguyen Ngoc Loan, South Vietnamese chief of the national police, fires his pistol into the head of suspected Viet Cong official Nguyen Van Lem on a Saigon street early in the Tet Offensive, February 1, 1968. Photographer Eddie Adams reported that after the shooting, Loan approached him and said, “They killed many of my people, and yours too,” then walked away.

Bang, followed by soldiers of the South Vietnamese army’s 25th Division, June 8, 1972. A South Vietnamese plane seeking Viet Cong hiding places accidentally dropped its flaming napalm on civilians and government troops instead. Nine-year-old Kim Phuc (center) had ripped off her burning clothes while fleeing. The other children (from left) are her brothers Phan Thanh Tam, who lost an eye, and Phan Thanh Phouc, and her cousins Ho Van Bon and Ho Thi Ting.
The worse that the US was involved in was the My Lai Massacre which our government never sanction, but did try to cover up. It ended up with Lieutenant William Calley being convicted and sentenced to life in prison, but two days later, President Nixon released him and sent him to Fort Benning, Georgia, where he spent three-and-a-half years under house arrest. A federal judge then ordered him freed. Calley’s conviction was the only one of the 26 men who had faced charges.
Here are some picture from that massacre:
I showed the pictures above to have you recall the hell that was raised over the My Lai Massacre when it was made public, and to ask where is the outrage from the so call Moderate Islamic by what ISIS and the so called Syria Rebels are doing in Iraq and Syria?
The ISIS terrorists are raving about a “New Caliphate” and totally ignore the fact that they’re cornered themselves and have nowhere to flee to now.
The 13th century Iraqi Caliphate was destroyed by the Mongols and their ruler Hulagu Khan. He was a disciple of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. The Buddhist sect of his masters – The Sakyapas – followed a deity of the Apocalypse called Kalachakra. The Kalachakra announces the end of the world.
The Fall of Baghdad in the 13th century is linked to the Kalachakra, the faith of the Mongols. The Caliphate was destroyed by an alliance of enemies gathered to defeat it. Islam is the most horrible thing existing in the world in those days. The Shiites along with tribes from Azerbaijan, Mongols, Christians, Jews, Chinese, Afghans all allied to destroy Iraq’s dictatorial 13th cent. Caliphate and raze it to the ground.
The Shiites bone to pick with the Sunni, of whom the members of ISIS consist, is a theological differences that date back to the founding of the Islam. They started fighting right after Muhammad’s died in 632 A.D., over who had the right to lead Islam. The Shiites believed that only descendants of Muhammad by blood could become Islamic leaders. At the time of his death, they believed his cousin and son-in-law, Ali, was the rightful heir, as reported in the Christian Science Monitor, while the Sunnis believed that anyone could lead Muslims, whether they were related to the prophet or not . This is the fight that they still fight today.
This is the box ISIA has put themselves in, and arrayed against them is almost the same coalition they faced in the 13th Century: Syria’s Assad and his air-power, the biggest Middle Eastern air force, newly refurbished by Russia; Turkey, hitting back for incursions into Turkey by ISIS; Iran, has sent elements of The Islamic Republic of Iran Army into Iraq, but not to help ISIS; Jordan risks suffering the same political and humanitarian disasters currently embroiling Syria and Iraq; Russia is backing Syria in its war with ISIS; Baghdad that is hitting northern Iraq; China, who knows what China will do; And if Obama ever gets off his ass, the USA. The Caliphate is heading for hell.
ISIS announced that it should now be called ‘The Islamic State’ and declared its chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as “the caliph” of the new state and “leader for Muslims everywhere,” the radical Sunni militant group said in an audio recording distributed online on Sunday.
This is the first time since the fall of the Ottoman Empire in 1923 that a Caliph – which means a political successor to Prophet Muhammad – has been declared. The decision was made following the group’s Shura Council meeting on Sunday, according to ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani.
[snip] The jihadist group has also claimed that they are now a legitimate state.
The Islamic State has called on Al-Qaeda and other radical Sunni militants in the region to immediately pledge their allegiance, ushering in “a new era of international jihad.”
“The Shura [Council] of the Islamic State met and discussed this issue…The Islamic State decided to establish an Islamic caliphate and to designate a caliph for the state of the Muslims,” said group spokesman Adnani. Link
This is the box they have put themselves in:
