Its glory is all moonshine; even success the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies, with the anguish and lamentations of distant families ... It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. ? William T. Sherman

The only things I abhore about war are death and the physical/mental destruction of humanity.

Beyond that they rock.

It's unfortunate humanity has a predisposition to self-destruct.

If we survive through the next century without a civilization ending war, you can color me surprised.

Chances are one itchy trigger finger controlling an ICBM silo will trigger the deaths of billions of human lives.

We have been waging wars for as long as time, but only now (in this last century) have we invented weapons made solely for the purpose of destroying large population centers in a single mushroom cloud. The world has enough megatons of nuclear explosives to ensure the extinction of the species.

That, and large nations refuse to acknowledge that they are no longer nimble and resort to using these weapons because they feel that they "don't have any other choice."

Thank you for the generous tender of your deductive reasoning skills. ;)

Man what a mess this whole thing has turned into.

Hopefully it will resolve itself but I'm thinking not.

Those pics don't do it for me. Guess I have a cold black heart. Or maybe I've been over-exposed to and numbed by war and violence.

This collection of pictures, no....none yet anyway. There were questions about this picture being staged because the person lying down was shown moving up and around earlier in a NY Times photoslide and then was described as dead here. The NY Times has since edited the caption to read that this person was injured. Now nobody is sure if this guy was truly injured or not.

That's what happens after the staged pictures at Qana, the photochopped picture of Beirut burning, and some others that have been found.

I don't think these are photochopped, they are from professional journalists
