Yeah, I notices what looked like napalm, which I thought had now been outlawed. Thanks Mfezi.


No problem. Apologies if it looks like I'm somehow specifically looking for these things (I think my last post was on that Azarbaijan video), but it just happens that I immediately recognized the picture. I think I first saw it in an old magazine article on the Vietnam war and due to its iconic nature you will probably find it all over the internet (but without the Hawk in it of course).

@Mfezi

Thank you for calling this out! We have enough fake news in the world and do not need it here.

It is a lovely composite, but unfortunately a quick reverse image search found this:

I don't understand how it proves it is fake. Maybe they were taken one after the other. :wink:

The water ripples are exactly the same in both photos. That is impossible if they were taken even a split second apart. So that proves the planes were added (or removed?).
