The delivery system avoided attention

abiding by rules laid down in convention,

but what stifled their breath and took it away

was the invisible death ingested that day.


The media pictures of a spluttering end

flashed round the globe designed to offend,

and something so small that the eye couldn't see

awakened a monster in the land of the free.

Hi elP,

your father makes a very good point, although it is not a straight forward discussion, ever.

Those who pontificate about the methodology used to kill people and worse still, who use it to command the moral high ground, usually have never smelt a rotting corpse.

I wonder if god is more offended by the destruction of one of his creations dependent upon how it was dispatched and delivered to glory.

The renting of garments and weeping and wailing of those who ignore the suffering of their enemies, together with those who dispense conventional sanctioned death makes me want to puke. But hey, their god is on their side, so its all good.

As a complete dick-head once said, "God bless the whole world" I say screw him and his imaginary friend.

Just to confuse a complex situation even more, I'm in agreement with the destruction of Syrian Government Military capabilities, its the motivation and end goal I question, and the circumstances which pre-empted the action.

Hi, David,

I'm bringing up a painful subject, I know, but this reminds me of a conversation I had with my family over the weekend about the effects of the media on the public's perspective of war. I won't go into overmuch detail, because I suspect you have a good handle on the subject. But, I recall my father saying something along the lines of "dead bodies are dead bodies, be they dead by bullet or bomb".

And this could go 'anywhere' depending on the bent of the reader. Very clever and well constructed.
