This quintessence of dust

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how

infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and

admirable . . . . and yet,to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Tak Bai Massacre

It is worrisome that  images of a massacre can inspire        loathsome revulsion and lust at the same time, 
but the massacre of Muslim youngmen at 
Tak Bai, Thailand, does both:

Are Thai soldiers at a massacre 
pre-selected for their beauty?

Does the beauty of the soldiers,
 and the beauty of their youngmen,
 add something critical to the impact of this images?
