War is violent action. Weapons. Confusion. Blood. Excitement. This is what we are used to look at. This is what generally happen. But after war? Signs of rage and fury remain. Desolation and indifference. Distroyed walls of houses are scars which remind us of cruelty and pain. Empty streets and abandoned neighborhood are signs of the defeat of human beings.
