It's a mad, mad world

The world seems a bit fucked in the head today.

Once again, the leaders of the most powerful nations sit back and do the square root of fuck all as Israel slaughters civilians. In a week of shockingly indiscriminate killing, the death of the four young boys playing on the beach particularly sickened me. They were the same age as my son, just doing as eleven year old boys do, mucking about with their mates.

And then the shooting down over Ukraine of a passenger airliner with nearly three hundred people on board.

Sometimes, the capacity of the human race to heap suffering on each other simply astounds me.
