twitchy, that picture seems to me to be a poor photoshop job.
Anyways if you think this is a good way to protest, then i guess you are free to do so. But don't come running back blaming Bush for whatever burns you get if you survive....

Where in the hell did I say that setting yourself on fire was good? LOL that is a famous photgraph FYI. The guys name was Quang Duc, and he set him self on fire to protest the Chinese occupation of Tibet. Are you so eager to debunk everything that you are ignorant of one the most famous protest events in the Vietnam war era? They didn't have phtoshop in the sixties. Hey but since you are such a photo expert, I'll post some better shots for you.

Perhaps you didn't notice the sarcasm....... I don't think a smart person... would actually blame Bush, Clinton, or any other president or administration for getting burned by setting himself/herself on fire...
The blame rest only on himself/herself for setting themselves on fire.....

That's what i meant DG.....

No thanks twitchy, i don't enjoy watching and inspecting closely a picture of a man/woman setting themselves on fire, wether it is real or not. For the brief moment that i saw the photo it seemed that the fire was behind the face of the man and not on him.

BTW if you want to call ignorant every person that doesn't know every event that has happened in the world by heart, I guess you better start calling everyone, yourself included, as ignorant....

Well, dude, I don't usually spend my time trying to debunk things that I don't have a clue about, and I didn't mention anything in my post about Bush, but you not only display your ignorance of the photo, but spin my post into some kind of glorification of self-immolation. You are so ridiculously hell bent on your pro-bush garbage that you jump on any post you can, looks like you jumped the gun on that one huh? I wasn't even talking about Bush lol.

Perhaps if you spent sometime reading the posts you are refering to,you will realize i quoted DGtempe not you,when i mentioned Bush and Clinton....

BTW...that I remember, you have spent a lot of time claiming things which you obviously had no clue about...so perhaps before you start lecturing anyone you should start with yourself.... i made a comment on what I thought about the picture...I didn't claim to be an expert and be right about it.... do notice that i said "that picture seems to me....."

I don't think it is necessary to have pictures of the flaming Vietnamese Buddhist monk. A link will do.

No, by protesting and claiming all of this is Bush fault, just like every other attempt that some people keep using to try to blame Bush and the administration for everything that happens under the sun...among other things..

Oh, brother!


Sets himself on fire in front of the white house
Shouts Alla! Alla!

Well, lets see....hmmm...
This is a protest i believe, dumb as it is, and my guess this man is NOT pro-Bush.
I came to this brilliant deduction because:

A. I'm a member of Mensa
B. I have good common horse sense
C. I blame everything on Bush

That still is not "trying to change the outcome of the election". It might be to protest the out come, but I cannot believe that any of these protesters think their acts would have any remote possibility of changing the election.!

On that I agree with you Grady, there is enough death and mayhem happening in the world to want to see more death, or people setting themselves on fire.

Frayed, when you are quoting someone please finish whatever you are quoting by puting [*/quote] without the asterisk, so we can see better what you are saying, thanks.

Anyways, perhaps you should see some of the posts that appear all over the forums of ATS, then perhaps you will see that there are people who want exactly what I said and will try to protest any way they can to try to change the outcome of the election.

I will try to post acceptable quotes, from now on, M....I checked the preview and it looked as it was supposed to, but upon the actuall posting some sort of glich occured and my addition, which did come after the quote mark, somehow ended up inside the box.....sooooo sorry. Didn't mean to detract from things.

I still say that those protests were not geared to changing the out come of the election. And I have read a lot on ATS reguarding the liking and disliking of the election outcome......I know, as does most everyone else...protesting is not trying to overthrow the outcome of the election.

the man snapped and he is an American , I imagine.

I'm not missing the point. This person is obviously crazed and angry at the White House.

Shouting Ala, Ala, is refering to the current war on terror. what else?

Blame Bush? Who else do we blame, Clinton?

Not necessarily. Turns out you are wrong. He's a paid Yemeni informant who wants the FBI to fast-track his case. Took a temper tantrum when they didn't.

Even if you were right, maybe he should blame Allah for giving the big
for murder of 'infidels'. Or if we can't bad-mouth Allah, how about blaming the terrorists that specialize in beheading, for starters?

Ed, you're scaring me....did you develop a soft-spot, or did you just forget your
?

It turns out that the guy was a paid Yemeni informant for the FBI. As I said in another post, now I feel really sad. Do you know how hard it is to find and keep native Yemeni informants? What a waste.
