    Exclamation Looking for a Photo from the Yugoslavian Breakup and Civil War from the 90's.

    Perhaps you all have a better Memory than I do. I can't seem to find the Photo I recall seeing splattered all over the World. During the War with Serbians, Croatian, and Bosnia. I have forgotten, there was a Couple of Kid's who were trying to leave their Town, to start a New Life together. He was Serbian Christian, and she was Croatian Muslim. The were Gun downed on the Streets by Snipers. as they tried to Leave. There is a Famous Sad Photo of the 2 of them in an Embrace, where they fell on the Road. I would like to know who they were, and if some one can find the Photo, please post here. The snipers were out of Control in that horrible War. Paul

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    Yea that's it! Damn that Sniper! They were just a couple of Kid's trying to start a new Life somewhere safe. How Sad! When this happened Yugoslavia was no longer part of Europe, just a Feuding 3rd World Nation, like some parts of Africa. I happened to remember it. War is always Hell! Thank you for posting this.

    Selco talks extensively about such sniper crossfire areas...sick motherfuckers who killed just because of the breakdown in society, and because they could...

    I recommend this movie:

    Shot Through the Heart (1998)

    I was thinking about this yesterday. This was not done by a "sniper" but by a murderer who enjoyed killing people just because he/she enjoyed it. Didn't matter who, it was about the killing.

    You are correct in all but one thing...it was done by snipers/sniping...that was one method the sick murderers who enjoyed killing people employed during the Yugoslavian SHTF.
