An important pic.

When I was image-googling for my prev post, to find a nice pic of a flag with the sickle et al, I found this pic thru Wiki.

This is a very important pic in the history of mankind. The soldier seen is a Russian. The flag is that of the Soviet Union. He is standing on top of the Reichstag flying the flag after the German nation fell. This picture signals the beginning of the end of the World War II.

This is one of World War II's iconic images. This is the photo of the Hammer and Sickle being flown over the Reichstag building as Berlin falls to the Red Army.

Thought I must post it to let the world know :)

Cool one man - sort of like the Americans planting their flag on one of those Pacific Islands - sort of like the old NetBSD logo. BTW, why does everyone think I'm a commie...
