This picture, of a child walking past damaged buildings in Deir al-Zor, Syria was taken, yesterday on the 4. April 2013 - and looks more like a fiction movie scene. But no it's today's Syria.

 “War tends to make cultures alike, whereas peace is that condition under which each culture flowers in its own incomparable way. From this it follows that peace cannot be exported, it is inevitably corrupted by transfer; its attempted export always means war” (Ivan Illich).
