As our thoughts go out to all those caught up in the recent horrors of war, two quotes come to mind:

Shakespeare - Henry V:

"Now thrive the armourers . . . . "

[These are the ones who truly profit from war.]

Bertrand Russell:

"War does not determine who is right, only who is left."

We can only pray for peace to fall on that torn region, for the suffering, grief and pain to end and for the destruction, devastation and pollution to cease.
