    No, that might be true if there was no context, but as it was linked with them storming the ship, there is no such way to possibily read it as you suggest. The only conclusion is that he got hurt by those on the ship. There is no such detachment.

    BTW, even with the knife in that person's hand, we don't know he hurt that particular soldier. What we do know both ways as that he got hurt during the raid, and not likely by his own people or self inflicted. So, the only option is the people on the ship.

    There is no such support, which is what makes your comment asinine.

    Exactly. No one thinks he fell down. Everyone who saw the picture from the beginning thought he was knocked down. Thanks for supporting me.

    Exacrly. Thank you for continuing to support what I'm saying. No one believed otherwise (though terrorist may not be accurate).

    Did you just learn to spell that word and now intend on over-using it?

    Number one- there is a knife in a hand- no face shown. This isn't evidence against a particular individual. Number two- a stab-type wound in the lower abdomen isn't typical as the result of an accident. Accidental injuries that cause cuts tend to be on the periphery of the body, unless one falls on a sharp object and the trunk is pierced. I suppose the soldier may have "fallen" on the knife of whoever was holding it.
