Thanks to all the various Palestinian terrorist groups, as well as Al-Qaida, Iran and Hezbollah, we have been witness to the most disgusting displays of inhumane treachery capable by human hands. One thing that they all have in common –besides being fanatical Islamists– is their use of children in the battle field.
Iran passed out plastic keys to their “kiddy mine clearing unit”, Palestinians have used their youth as bombs, with one being a 15 yr. old mentally handicapped, as well as Al-Qaida, who also used children as decoys, literal “sitting ducks” in the back seat of bomb laden car in Iraq while Hezbollah, known world wide as that “social welfare” organization that “takes care of its people”, used its own as human shields during the last Lebanon war with Israel.
Now there’s the Taliban, who see no problem with in using a SIX YEAR OLD as a human bomb against Afghan forces.
“They placed explosives on a six-year-old boy and told him to walk up to the Afghan police or army and push the button,” said Captain Michael Cormier, the company commander who intercepted the child, in a statement. “Fortunately, the boy did not understand and asked patrolling officers why he had this vest on.”
Lieutenant Colonel David Accetta, ISAF eastern regional command spokesman, told the Guardian: “In the past we have not seen the Taliban sink that low, to use children as suicide bombers. The personnel secured the vest to make sure the child was safe.” More here
And then there are the moral relativists –in the West and elsewhere– who equivocate both crook and cop as being morally the same. Sick. *L* KGS
