A pretty disturbing realization that summarizes well the macabre logic of evil at play on the horrific explosion of flight Malaysia Airlines 17, shot down by a surface-to-air missile over Ukraine’s territory: Not only 298 innocent lives were taken without a reason, but over a hundred of them –those AIDS researchers and scientists killed– were actually men and women who had given their entire lives and careers to save others. 

Men going down, once again, the eternal river: to quote Conrad, “the infernal stream, the stream of darkness.”
