How can anyone hear the Star Spangled Banner and not tear up considering the sacrifices made by all men and women for our freedom?

Canadian & British Troops Are a Huge Part Of WW2 's D- Day . Too Often People seem To Forget This Important Detail in Our History Books , Both My Parents were there ( Arnhem NL) on the boarder of Holland & Germany and have told many times what they saw and what happened My Father was in the war as a soldier & a prisoner of war . Show some respect to those who lost their loved ones and this senior and just be thankful that we are FREE !! xox Peace To All .

this has got to be the best single comment i've read in a very long long time... There's just too much certainty in the world today. We're ready to fire, but never to listen.

The rants regarding the US and the USSR sadden me. The gentleman kneeling at the old tank is both poignant and powerful. He did what HE had to do WHEN he had to do it. I'm sure he had no choice, as my own family members who died in that war. I am an American, but I have not met one single Russian yet, that I didn't like. That certainly includes the elder gentleman in this picture. Bless him.

Look. We have an old man who spent part of his youth in a steel box, being shot at and shooting at other young men in steel boxes. Both sets of young men thought that they were defending their countries from evil enemies. This old man has found the tank in which statistically he should have died, and is overcome by emotion. The photograph shows all of this very eloquently. Take a quiet moment to absorb the emotion. Why do you have to be small minded and sully the photo with your petty arguments?

Firstly respect to the veterans as well, to all veterans whatever side they fought in WWII. Secondly it should be clear, that there were no black and white side in WWII, you can only pick a preferred sides depending on your nationality. Thirdly no one won the war by themselves. US didn't win it, beacuse you can't underestimate the Soviet Unions role. The USSR dind't win it, fisrstly beacuse it failed in it's original plan to conquer Europe in 1942, read articles about operation Gorza (unfortunately I don't know any articles in british) and secondly, beacuse it would have probably lost the war it without the allied food and light equipment aid in 1941 (nearly 30% of SU soldiers weared western boots during winter 41/42 for example). Fourtly most of the nations lost the war anyway. Germans whose country was divided. Jews, who lost 6 millions lives in the nazi regime. Eastern European nations, who suffered the terror of SU and the party killed 12 millions of them by the end of war and deported many of them to Siberia afterwards and to add the loss of independence. And so on...

hahahahahahaha i just waited for patito on this one,i just knew he has something wise to say,suprised me that fyi bit the hook.

Impressive photo! Could you leave the USA vs Russia vs the World fighting, at least here? As rant said, the guy had to fight in that tank just to survive. In the end, it's all about survival at the low levels, and conquest/domination, at the higher levels, and it's always the "average Joe" paying the price, no matter what's his side.
2008-05-31 12:23:54
It is the governments of each country, NOT joe-average-citizen which dictates the actions of said country. The veteran in the picture represents the ordinary man who had to drive a tank to survive. What are the "peasants" of China doing tonight?
2008-05-31 11:19:07
Kind of like what the USA is doing now.

Patito and his ReaderDidest brain has said. Thanks God Pixdaus has Patito.

The most foolish mistake one can make is to believe one's own little corner of reality is The Whole Truth...all societies indoctrinate their young, and though some do a better job than others we're all taught to believe we're the good guys and that our enemies are evil...And then we grow up, and if we're lucky enough to receive a real education we look around and realize that no society and no country has a franchise on good behavior and decency, and that all countries have skeletons in their closets...this name calling and finger pointing from both sides of this argument is just plain silly...Every country that has had the power and ability to has done terrible things to someone , somewhere, sometime,and we should ALL be ashamed of some of the things our ancestors have done and resolve to try to do better in the future...

Look at him: in 2008 he is still trying to push that old American shit about Cold War being caused by "Stalinism and Maoism". What are you hoping for? The world has already forgoten about this idiotic American mythology. The Cold War had the only one purpose: keeping American imperialist world domination ambitions at bay. The entire world is eternaly grateful to the Soviet Union for protecing it from that wave of evil, while managing to avoid the nuclear destruction. The world is watching the rise of Russia and, for this reason, can now breathe easier, knowing that it will help to put the rampant American violence at bay this time as well.

LOL. What a moron! I know that American propaganda seldgehammers a syringe with this shit into the head of every american 5-year old. Most of them end up ignorant, but otherwise normal people. But you are apparently one of those specimen that got serious brain damage from that procedure (sledgehammer missed the syringe and hit the head?). Read the book? I read more books in my life than you can ever count, imbecile. I not only read books, I've talked to peopole who went through all this. I have a family who went through all this. Book... Look: an American using the word "book" in a sentence! What do you know about books? Are you calling those a-dime-a-dozen American propaganda recyclables "books"? LOL. Gosh, the mental retaradation levels are just unfathomable here... Every time I think I saw a new record, something new comes along.

I am thinking that making up sentimental titles for pictures is not helping the pictures. Photograph is good enough without them.
2008-05-31 00:05:53
read above dipshit. oh i forgot, only the US is interested in imperial expansion, the Russians and Chinese have never heard of such evil. oh god why do i bother.
2008-05-31 00:04:12
i lost my temper with the ignorant anti-american bashing that some people play like their little sport. no one wants to talk about the civil wars and destabilization that occured worldwide during the cold war and after as a direct result of Stalinism and Maoism, much less the atrocities and crimes against humanity that took place in Russia and eastern europe, China, Cambodia, central america, Chile, Peru. want to talk about those things korben? forget it, i can't discuss with people like you and it is so unlike me to insult someone on the internet so peace out. total respect to the old guy.

Nothing but respect for the old guy,powerful photo.
2008-05-30 23:51:45
you're so obssessed with your erection for america you so easily forget america completely reconstructed Europe with the Marshall Plan and literally saved millions of lives doing it, not to mention other millions of lives saved around the world with ongoing humantiarian missions, while Stalin and the Soviet system were busy exterminating millions of their own people dissapearing them or sending them to the gulags to die. grow the fuck up korben you snivelling little twink. nothing is simple, everything has 2 sides. read a fucking history book. good day.

Well, they _won_ the war in the end, saving the world from Hitler. Not much help from "anti-nazi coalition" (LOL). Now let's take a look at the good old USA. They created and supported an extreemist Muslim terrorist organization called Taliban, responsible for terrorist acts around the world ("started as an ally", huh...). And now are they going to clean up their own mess? Highly unlikely...
2008-05-30 23:16:15
This are the Soviet people who single-handedly won the biggest war ever adn defeted Hitler for the benefit of the entire world, paying for the victory with their lives and their blood. These are the people who then went on to protect the world from the similar American world dominance amibitions. These are the most respected and admired people in every single place on thsi planet. Some retards don't know it, but that's OK. Not knowing things is what retards do.

This is part of a series I saw on 'English Russia's' web site. There are a number of shots, folks were worried about his health.
2008-05-30 18:30:00
oh my god.. :speechless: respect.
2008-05-30 17:54:13
Starting the war in 1939 as a Hitler's ally and ending in 1945 as a member of anti-nazi coalition just to put half of Europe under occupation for 40 years. Respect.
2008-05-30 17:25:13
respect to our veterans

Not quite all the war, the T34/85 (which is what this one is) wasn't put into production until 1944.
