Small token of what may eventually suffer a people. The money, ambition, bad politics, totalitarian governments, dictatorships ..... always the same things that lead us to disaster.

This is a small sample of what happens when there is war.

Unfortunately, humans are like that. Capable of the most wonderful things yet to unleash the worst terrors.

Spanish Civil War.

    Powerful every way!...How true and sadly that in the end, what does war accomplish but to engender more hate and revenge to get even...Peace is needed far more more than wars and it begins with each of us.

    thanks for writing. I totally agree with you. And I think in general terms that humans still have to mature.

    In my humble opinion, Picasso's "Guernica" is the greatest painting of the 20th century.

    So true, we humans are frail and just keep repeating history it seems mainly through greed, we appear to forget that both sides in the war get hurt, our infrastructures get hurt and our lives almost have to start over. Yet we continue into war as if it gives us an outcome which it never does. Peace is definitely the answer!

    Classic and iconic. Alas! History tells us there will always be war. It is, as von Clausewitz said, the extension of diplomacy. I tremble for our future, however.

    A strong image jaume, and your comments amplify it quite nicely. You helped me to make myself a little more familiar with the history of this place. War is destructive work, but peace is a more arduous task.
