Or is it already too late to stop it?

Firstly, the image: it is a knock-out! How did you do it? Mirrors? Duplicating and flipping?

Secondly, the context: Yes, it is too late to stop it. Having said that though, we need to examine what it is that we do that necessitates this evil response. We also need to think about how we react to evil acts.

A war on terror is a futile reaction. Much better a war on poverty, on marginalisation, on ignorance.

Another very powerful image. I afraid I don't know the answer to that question, but war and terrorism is not the way. We need to address the underlying problems.
