It's starting to look like a competition to see who can post the most gruesome photo......
At least it gives everyone a chance to see just how gruesome violent death is....although it seems some aren't aware that the "gruesome-ness" has
been pretty much the same for all of human history. Of course, images of that type create a dramatic emotional reaction in normal humans....making it
difficult to keep one's reasoning on an even keel....I guess it's easier to skew the discussion away from somber reason and reflection than it is to
look into real causes and influences. And it's a cheap tactic from those that don't care to discuss the issue in depth, or consider the perfidy of
both sides of this conflict.
Over and over again, like a broken record...."those poor people.....it's genocide!!.....it's slaughter!!!!....."the Israelis are horrible, Arab
killing monsters..." Uh, hello?....some of us answered the clue phone a long time ago....we know it's horrible, we know death and dismemberment is
gruesome......and we also know that there are agents exterior to the Gaza Strip influencing this conflict, and that neither side has any particular
upperhand claim for any special morality. For crying out loud, offer some alternative, some way of changing the status quo....or just shut up.
"Oooh, but MrPenny....I feel more special about myself when I parrot the comments that I think I should be saying...."
Hello?? Humans have been inflicting that kind of savagery on each other forevah.......why, some even in the name of religion.
