The images of torn and tattered flesh

The metallic smell of blood and reek of decomposing flesh.

The cries of anger, pain and loss.

More images of torn and tattered flesh

Again the metallic smell of blood and reek of decomposing flesh.

More cries of anger, pain and loss.

And so it goes on as this cycle of death

Draws more in.

The reprisal is it for revenge?

Or for justice?

Does it matter who did it this time?

Isn't it always a crime?

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
The full quote of my tag line.
“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. Maybe many of us won't be here to greet her, but on a quiet day, if I listen very carefully, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy, War Talk
I'm trying very hard to hear her breathing through the din.
What is absurd and monstrous about war is that men who have no personal quarrel should be trained to murder one another in cold blood.
Aldous Huxley

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
