‘The horror, the horror…’



I’m not all that interested in contributing to the debate who is to blame for the latest war in the Middle East - with both sides causing the deaths of literally hundreds of innocent civilians this is a discussion which I personally find somewhat sickening.

I found these images online, of young children writing messages on artillery shells (see above, see the entry at The Guardian’s blog and also this blog entry). If these images do not sum up the essence of why the region is in the state it is in right now, I don’t know what else will (and don’t bother to point out the nationality of the children - you can easily find corresponding images from the other side).
