and years later, after the wars, the killing continues

Cruel Summer: Bombs of Vietnam War Continue to Kill and Maim

from www.warchild.org
In the desolate heights of Afghanistan, in the lush African savannas and steep Bosnian valleys, in cities and villages, tens of millions of landmines lie hidden, to be cleared -as one Cambodian surgeon put it - “One limb at a time.”

and more from the International Campaign to Ban Landmines

the wars that are resolved, abandoned, "won" --they leave their legacy buried, quietly waiting for new victims to carry on their name.

War should be relegated to the shelves of history, as was human sacrifice.
