: The Rest Of The Story

Although a single photo find prompted me to post this thread, it may be useful for future added details in other stories.

Sometimes there is much more to a story or photograph than makes the news reports.

Such was the case for me when I ran across the famous picture of that lone man confronting a tank in Tiananmen Square.

I had always seen it from a different angle which seemed to convey that he and a single tank were alone in the middle of the square.

As you will see, that was not the case at all. (http://i.minus.com/iHHVQwK8L6s3u.jpg) (The pic enlarges to a huge size.)

I know what you mean SINC you most often see the footage close up, but I had previously seen the bigger picture that he was holding up a whole battalion of tanks... pretty cool.

Even more amazing. Still, his courage is there whether he is in front of one tank or an armada of tanks.
