Man’s inhumanity to children
Re “The small, devastating face of yet another war” (Opinion, Op Image, Aug. 27): The sad face of the wounded 5-year-old boy from Aleppo, Syria, is a clear reflection of collateral damage in modern warfare. Whether from cannon fire or from aircraft bombs, the fact that innocent children are being killed every day seems to be of little concern to those who make war.
Men with power go on with their battles day after day, men who have little or no contact with the actual death and destruction that they merely approve of from afar. Certainly this kind of indiscriminate killing qualifies as crimes against humanity. Charges should be leveled at these leaders. Somehow there needs to be accountability.
