‘From Paris with Love': A short history of the United States’ affinity for decorating bombsBreaking News
tags: Paris Attack
Seemingly in tandem with the renewed airstrikes, images —while not verified—have gone viral on social media of American bombs and missiles emblazoned with a phrase of solidarity: “From Paris with Love.”...
After the 9/11 attacks, a slew of pictures popped up of bombs inscribed with messages for Osama Bin Laden and notes of solidarity for the New York police and fire departments. One message of note was prominently circulated by the Associated Press and shows a Navy sailor next to a bomb aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise in October 2001. On the bomb was a phrase that read “Hijack this” as well as an anti-gay slur. The image was quickly condemned by a number of rights groups and prompted an apology from both the AP and the United States Navy.
