What a Truce Looks Like in Homs

Over 10 days ago I already noted the state of Homs after the truce by citing Tacitus' "Where they make a desert, they call it peace," in my post Homs: "Ubi Solitudinem Faciunt, Pacem Appellant."

This appalling picture draws this comment from Human Rights Watch:" "Hiroshima after the bomb? Dresden after the firestorm? No, Homs today."
