But sorry ATS, I don't agree with the picture of Bin Laden

Someone needs to bone up on their awareness of events and imagery.

The picture at right, in the site skin for today, is a famous shot of an Afghani man looking for missing loved ones in the aftermath of a coalition push where many civilians were killed. I adjusted the image so that it's more obvious.

As the story goes, he's looking for his brother and his son. Crop of the full-size image is below, showing details of the pictures:

I was looking for, and anticipating using that exact picture for the skin today.


The full image below:

Very disappointed with the awareness of ATS members this day.
(sad)

So changed the focus, re-cropped to show the hand and the pictures, and call it a day. Something tells me that this was all planned, wich is really sad.

Too funny!!!
The background just added the Arab dude holding some photo. It looks like the two of the three American hikers that have been kidnapped in Iraq!

OOOPS, I just read what S.O. stated.
OK, I see what he is saying now. Wow, that is sad

I wonder if he ever found his loved ones.?
I also wonder, that the avatar that S.O. is using of the firemen carrying out a victim
in a chair, if he made it?

Yup. Planned to use a site "skin" on 9/12/2011 as an artistic statement for the unjust wars that came as a result of 9/11/2001, ten years and one day ago.




wich is really sad.

It is indeed sad that some members of ATS are unable to visually discern the differences between Ahmadinejad, bin Laden, and an Afghani civilian.

been thinking this same thing reading through the last 4 pages of this thread. and the other closed thread referencing the same pic. the first thing i saw after seeing him was the razor wire. people kept bringing up symbolism but ignored that little telling detail
frankly you shouldnt even need to defend yourself on this issue, but thank you for clarifying

Wow...the pictures of the people falling out of the buildings is just plain heartbreaking. I cannot imagine being faced with that scenario, what bravery.

Sure, I shouldn't have the defend the choice of images in this case... but I also shouldn't have to explain iconic imagery associated with what is discussed here on ATS.

And I suppose I shouldn't anticipate apologies for such terrible jerking-knee assumptions.

LOL.

Thanks for clearing that up.


But I swear the guy in the background image still looks like Ahmadinejad! Maybe he has a twin brother in Afghanistan?

Yet you responded to another post after mine and why not? It's not like we've seen the pictures of the missing relatives of the person before... and obviously most of the people here on ATS didn't know who it was either, otherwise anyone else would have cleared that up way before you.

oh come ON, saying that everyone Afghanistan and Iraq are terrorists is like saying everyone who was born in Milwaukee is a serial killer like Jeffrey Dahmer.


SO - i think BOTH of the graphic images you guys have chosen do accurately and artistically paint the picture.... perhaps tomorrow you should post a background image that is symbolic of all the freedoms and rights we have lost in America as a result of this "war on terror" :-/

Lets not forget Car Bombs set off by the Muslims themselves have killed more citizens then the coalition..

That is a proven fact.

Along with kidnapping, beheading of anyone not muslim.

Do I need to post the video of the Muslim showing his son how to behead another muslim? Or the video of slaughtered and beheaded children?

Or the story of Muslim men Raping women in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Or will this account get banned, With the Moderator message of

He does look like Ahmadinejad.

Do you think that this is happening accidentally ?

Great Idea. I got what you mean.

I believe that they see what they want to see. Like they were doing about Nostradamus. He just was imagining and others are painting his imaginations.

Yes.

An "artistic statement" about the death caused by the reaction to the events of 9/11.


Well at first, I was kind of shocked by it.

Now I can understand the statement a little better..

I know ATS is not *dissing* anyone.

I guess I should care more about everyone not just the Americans that died.

For some odd reason, I still feel they deserved it for attacking the trade centers and letting
terrorist run their nations. All the hate they have for America.

I do not want anyone dead, no more Americans or Iraqi's/Afghanis, I just want everyone to chill
out.

What's the message... the point, I'm confused....


The point is the Billboard in New York city.

The billboard is claiming : "As we remember 9/11 ten years later , Al-Qaeda silent member is coming to New York".
