Dear photography professionals,

I greatly admire your work and the effort you put forth documenting the human experience, but I must beg you to stop using Adobe® Flash® to display your work on the web. It makes for a horrible experience and detracts from the message you're trying to convey.

Trurl, your point? Should they ignore it and walk by? Throw buckets of water on it?

From homunculus' link

The Taliban clearly want a propaganda boost from the five-hour attack.

The video appears designed to undermine that propaganda effort.


Erm, hello, this is a five hour attack on the US Embassy in Kabul. I think the Taliban are winning this one!
