Ten Years Later
A few of us remembered to make note of October 7th, as it marks the tenth anniversary of the commencement of the War On Terra. A decade later, the casualties continue to mount not only in Afghanistan (and neighboring Pakistan), but Iraq, Yemen, Libya, and elsewhere. Sadly, the last decade has been one befitting our bloody history. Image and caption below nicked from Marisacat.
