What is the big deal? A bunch of non-photographers thinking they see something different when it is just perspective?

As for being "staged", well, yes, they always are. Iwo Jima, for example.

The famous picture taken by Rosenthal actually captured the second flag-raising event of the day. A U.S. flag was first raised atop Suribachi soon after it was captured early in the morning of 23 February 1945. Captain Dave E. Severance, the commander of Easy Company (2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment, U.S. 5th Marine Division), ordered Lieutenant Harold G. Schrier to take a patrol to raise an American flag at the summit to signal to others that it had fallen. After a fire-fight, a 54-by-28 inch (137-by-71 cm) flag was raised, and photographed by Staff Sergeant Louis R. Lowery, a photographer with Leatherneck magazine.[3] [4] [5] However, the first flag raised by the Marines was too small to be seen easily from the nearby landing beaches.
