May the ‘child on the beach’ force action

While the picture of the child on the beach is extremely moving it seems you have gone with a editorial policy similar to most newspapers. Youdon’t report on the horrors that are causing the mass movement of people.

Civilisations that lived in relative peace are being terrorised by ISIS and their own governments, How about a picture of the four men trussed up under a gantry with chains, over a bed of straw, doused with petrol before they were burned alive?

Maybe pictures of these type may move the Western governments to step in.
