Recent picture told a troubled story

The first thought that entered my mind when I saw the picture: "Evacuating the Wounded" on the front page of The Day, May 15, was Walt Kelly's Pogo and the familiar quote: "We have met the enemy and he is us". I realize that this quote may be interpreted in more than one way. 

Palestinians and Israelis are supposed to be at least somewhat civilized. However, when these types of events occur in "civilized" societies, it is my belief that the so called "leaders" on both sides have failed as "leaders" and should (must) turn their roles over to those of greater vision and intelligence. Note also that the quote is in the masculine.
