This is what America, Britain and Australia have brought to Iraq. It was taken just after a suicide bomber killed more that twenty people in Baghdad. If the uniform was different it could also be a picture from the West Bank taken just after another missile attack. In fact it could be a photograph taken from many places in the world.
Friends, wherever you are, be very thankful that you and those you love are not in this terrible situation. Speak out against war and injustice strongly on your blogs but do not carry the guilt for it within you.
The guilt lies elsewhere: among Politicians, Directors and Shareholders of Multi-national Companies, Religious Fundamentalists, the Ultra-rich and the Sheeple who allow the forementioned to rule.
(P.S. Thanks to the Peace Tree for the photo, one which can be enlarged to better capture the expression of terror on the young boy's face.)
