A Common Thread of Disaster

Kevin Sites’ blog entry on the Israeli assault on Tyre, Lebanon is a shocking, disturbing portrayal of war’s cost. The dust covering the faces in these photos gives the subjects a ghastly pale.

It’s worth reminding ourselves that this terrible mess — war crimes and misdemeanors and all — is nothing new. Check out Goya’s 19th Century documentary masterpiece, The Disasters of War and Vietnam Inc.
