If I recall the Guard was at Kent State because the ROTC building had been torched the night before. Something else left out of the usual recounting of the event.

This young girl and those with her are wearing blue jeans and sports shoes. Just like a lot of Americans do. I doubt she was one who was intent on keeping the mullahs happy. I imagine that her “western style” dress played a part in her being chosen as a target by that perverted, sick, raghead murderer who murdered her.

Of course there's a huge difference. Surprised you equate the two.

What's going on is official gov't policy. I.e. the government over there is ordering violent suppression.

What happened at Kent State was NOT ordered by the White House. It was one isolated incident. Exacerbated, I might add, by communists students accusing the Gov't falsely. The students in Iran, however, are agitating for true freedom.

This is interesting since I kinda compare Iran’s election to our ACORN community agitator phoney election in so many places which, by the way, the swooning press failed to investigate at all; yet, we’re subjected to round-the-clock coverage of the same shenanigans going on in Iran.

I’ve been reading comments on other websites, and I’m amazed at the people who think this death may have been faked. Is that some kind of talking point that’s going around? I mean, the poor girl has copious amounts of blood coming out of her mouth and nose. How do you fake that, unless you’ve got a Hollywood studio at your disposal?

"Her image has become memorialized in posters, including one in style similar to those that represented the Barack Obama campaign."

It seems more appropriate to regard that image of Neda a slap in the face of the 0ne whose support for these people has been disgracefully AWOL.

If I remember correctly the Kent State shootings brought about the demise of campus riots...The students found out it wasn’t as much fun to sit it, and burn down buildings if you could get shot...

What a stupid comparison. Neda was killed by a sniper in an unprovoked attack.

“To those of you traumatized by what agony you think “Neda” was in as she lay wounded and died, I can assure you she felt none. I highly recommend the book “How We Die”, by Dr. Sherwin Nuland, who methodically using studies shows how our bodies are equipped with mechanisms to make us unaware and even blissful when we have suffered a fatal trauma.”

I wonder if Nuland can explain why a soldier cries out in pain and fear of death after they suffer a fatal trauma.

Three things:

1) The blood smear on the pavement *under her* as they first move her body, before any blood appears on her face.

2) The blood coming out of both nostrils, but no evidence of coughing

3) The blood running into the left eye, but not even a half-checked movement to wipe it away. Try to get even plain water in your eye, in those amounts, without blinking or wiping it away.

4) The fixed eyes at the end.

She was murdered, and the people on the other sites are simply covering for Obama, and repeating what they have been told, like the clueless sheep they are.

Tell them that to their face.

Can you photoshop that to read "Hope" or "Change"?

Or better still, "Obama's Fault"?

Obama Lied. Neda Died.

I agree.. there is a big difference. I was a KSU grad & out of there just a short time when this event exploded at Kent.

The SDSers were very rude when I was there.. bold, brass, obnoxious and that is when they werent high... & when I read the accounts & recall what they were like stoned, I could see them pushing the limits to inexperienced National Guardsmen.

Neda... her life & its message in death if very profound. She will make a difference, not as she had planned but as fate has provided

I was very much alive in 1970 and I find the article’s comparison to be appropriate-—you see a difference?

The attempt to overturn a brutal and oppressive dictatorship in Iran is comparable with enemy-led protests of America's efforts to free millions of South Vietnamese from communist oppression and brutality?

Here's a link to a must-read article on the event, from a non-left-wing biased source:

Imho, this is just another liberal’s attempt to equate this country with that of an evil regime.

No can do, Whiskers - I'm as photoshop challenged as you. Apparently this graphic has been widely circulated (according to the article linked by 2ndDivisionVet above) somehow as a twisted tribute to 0banana - sickening.

Joe P B ~ can you help?
