I tried going directly the attachment and get Invalid Attachment specified.

Not real sure what this could mean, but, did you by chance use this same attachment on another THR post? If so, I don't believe it will let you do that.

Well this isn't a painting, but I thing this is one the funnier sets of photo's i've come across. I think they are WWI Lithuanian solders

Dont exactly remember where I cam across these... but fairly interesting set of pictures from WWII taken on the Russian front by the Nazi army or a soldier thereof...

I recommend the book "Vietnam" by Larry Burrows.

You can find a bunch of pictures from it online, come to think of it.

that picture of the vietcong is crazy...

seems like i havent seen many images like that one...

those guys fought in sandals?

pretty scary. they have weapons from china and russia and they didnt even have shoes or boots.

i guess a commie has to have his priorities.

these are all amazing pictures thanks guys.
