I've always wondered how Tank man was able to leave his house that day, must have been very hard to move his massive balls through a doorway...what a ******* hero.
#883 to #14 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
Wasn't tank man actually a woman? I also think Chinese specialists carried her out of the way to be killed for acting against the government. Its a sad thing...

Nobody knows the fate of Tank Man. But he was not arrested, not carried off, not shot. They had what they thought was his name, but he wasn't among the dead or imprisoned. To this day not even the government knows the identity or fate of Tank Man.

The riots were planned and started by a group of anarchists who wanted to protest the G8 or G20 summits earlier that year in Toronto. They utilized the anger and impaired minds of only a microcosm of Vancouver Hockey fans. What happened is inexcusable, but it rustles my jimmies when people think it was just because of a "hockey" game. There were police, civlian and news reports of several people with bullet proof vests, face masks and molotov cocktails spouting pro-anarchistic ideals and spray painting the "A" on walls.

still doesnt stop it from happening all over the place anyways. Riots like this happen far too often and that particular one i suppose just so happened to have Anarchists planning it.
User avatar #299 to #8 - shaneac (03/21/2013) [-]
Also, the one about the Canadian riot is incorrect. The official story is that they aren't boyfriend and girlfriend. The girl was freaking out, and so the guy decided that the best way to calm her down was by making out with her. Seriously.

Wait . . . the moon landing was because Canada lost a hockey game?

You could argue that it was because of the Cold War. Both sides were interested in setting up a nuclear arsenal upon the moon as the ultimate weapon, but the first step in doing so is to land upon the moon.

Why would someone with a child even go to war. The dad was selfish moron. That kid now has no dad because his dad defied death. And lost.
User avatar #570 to #543 - tdhd (03/21/2013) [-]
Perhaps because they know that if they go to war they will be able to liberate people and make it possible to live peacefully with their children. Also because they want to do a service to their country.
All in all joining the army is the most selfless thing anyone can do as it is a massive commitment. LOG IN AND SAY THAT LIKE A MAN
#585 to #570 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
I don't have an account here. But I'd much rather have a father than have a dead father WHO FOUGHT FOR HIS COUNTRY BECAUSE PATRIONISM IS THE BEST and liberating foreign countries.

It's selfish to abandon your family for glory. I'd never do that and I'll never understand people who risk the most precious thing they'll ever get, their lives, especially when risking their lives also means risking their child losing a father.
User avatar #717 to #585 - ICEDgrunge (03/21/2013) [-]
How thick do you have to be to not understand that there's a difference between doing something for glory and doing something to protect the things you love? If soldier's went out to war for Glory, then I'd assume you'd see their names plastered over the news like any Kardashian in America, but that is simply not the case. No one cares for the dead, the only soldiers that are given a **** about are the poor souls who came back from the war without their limbs and not a single one of their brothers in arms left, and the only reason why those wonderful men are ever talked about, is because of the fault and grime of the media, it's not the soldier's who go out and strive for that, that is not what being a soldier is about, and you will never understand that without being a soldier. Not a single person here can name more than 5 soldiers (bar their close family and friends), there is no glory when that fact is evident. I can't say I don't understand your statement, I see why you have this point of view, but the glory is just a stupid thing to think a father would do something so decisive for.
Our views on this philosophical ******** are completely different, and maybe neither of us will ever see eye to eye here, as I know I will never agree with you, but the prerogative of a parent is to protect his children, and sometimes a father will put their lives on the line to do that, as that is the only way they can, the only reason you will never understand that is because you are NOT a father, I say that with an assumption, but if you fail to understand this while being a father then I was wrong that I know why you think in such a way.

However they also know that if they don't take that risk, there will be someone out there who will never have the opportunity to be a father because it is unfair.
People don't join the army for glory, war is the most inglorious thing possible. They go because they want to do what is right.
