read "Boston Massacre" memorial plate. The wording is interesting (at least for a foreigner).

what does it say on it, if you can recall?

That they mobbed some soldiers who openend fire and killed five. With a real effort on painting the soldiers in a negative light, and the mob in a positive light.

My head was screaming: "in Vietnam, Iraq or Afganistan there would be medals for that, this is all about spinning the news".

Fun fact, the British soldiers who fired on the civilians were (fairly successfully) defended by future US President John Adams.


Can you point out some similarities between the Taliban's Jihad and the American Revolution?

Sorry, I was just referring to the plate in the street. I didn't know about this article and that there was a possible confusion.
