This is so difficult to look at and not be horrified. What you are doing by bringing this to the fore is a brave thing, and I commend you. We all need awareness of these issues and we read too little of it. God Speed....

Hi askcherlock. Thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment. I agree - it is indeed horrifying.

You have a good blog askcherlock. One day I'll have enough EC to advertise. :)

You've been doing a good work of advocating justice throughout the world. Justice demands trials of war criminals and perpetrators of genocides. Please keep up the good work.
