Child Terrorists

>>  Sunday, July 03, 2011

I have read these 2 news reports in short space of each other and it sickens me.

Pakistani schoolgirl 'kidnapped for suicide attack' : A nine-year-old girl in Pakistan has said that she was taken and forced to wear an explosive vest in what police say was a planned militant attack.

Afghanistan: Eight-year-old girl 'used in attack' :An eight-year-old girl has been killed after insurgents used her in a bomb attack on police in southern Afghanistan, the government has said.

Can you imagine the faith of the little 8 year old girl as she was told that 'it would be ok', as she skipped happily up to the police, not knowing that she was about to be exploded into pieces.

If I asked my Brownies to put back packs on, if I smiled at them and told them it would be OK.  If I said it in the right tone, they would.  What sort of sick minded person does this to a child?

What do you think your 8 year old should be walking off in the distance to do?  Go and have an exciting adventure with friends or to die?

This makes me as angry as I feel about Child Murderers.

But perhaps it is better to have misled the child who died, who did not know she was about to be used as a walking bomb than for the children living as Child Soldiers.

My child has no idea how lucky she is, no idea at all.
