Nobody want to kill a kid, especially American soldiers. “It goes against everything we stand for and believe”, said one soldier serving in Afghanistan…
This according to reports coming from Afghanistan:
“Young children are a security risk in Afghanistan”, says one US Army private, who refused to give his name out of fear of his commanders and officials at the Pentagon who have ordered him not to discuss certain matters with the press. “We don’t want to shoot kids, but we have no idea when they come running toward us if they may have explosives or not. This is a war where you have to expect the unexpected if you want to stay alive. Our officers are idiots who tell us to protect civilians even at our own expense. If we shoot one by accident or even in ‘self defense’ we could get in all sorts of trouble for it. I fear when I see the kids running towards us that one may have an IED strapped to their back. Most of the time they are half starved looking for a handout, treats or goodies, like a stick of gum, an MRE or a plastic water bottle…we just have to be on guard. We have heard reports that the kids may carry explosives and could be acting as spies to held the Taliban identify our unit and strength”, he said.

CNN did an article where the Taliban were using 41 kids as suicide bombers: “Afghan police intercept suspected suicide bomb children” http://articles.cnn.com/2012-02-21/asia/world_asia_afghanistan-child-bombers_1_afghan-police-suicide-bombers-kunar-province?_s=PM:ASIA
The children are being trained and ‘brainwashed’ by the Taliban. In some cases they are as young as 6 years old.

LIKE HAMAS AND HEZBOLLAH SUICIDE CULTS
This is not unlike what Hamas and Hezbollah teaches children to do. It’s part of the suicide cult in Islam.
Human rights watch issued a statement calling on the Taliban to spot using children as suicide bombers (see: Afghanistan: Taliban Should Stop Using Children as Suicide Bombershttp://www.hrw.org/news/2011/08/31/afghanistan-taliban-should-stop-using-children-suicide-bombers).
Using kids as bombers is nothing new according to some Vietnam era vets who say the Viet Cong used children all the time to kill American GI’s . “It is like a bad nightmare to think these young kids in Afghanistan have to deal with what we dealt with in Vietnam”, said Doc Simpson a homeless vet living in Charlotte, underneath a bridge. “If these boys are forced to kill a kid to protect themselves they will be haunted for life”, he said.
Suicide bombers are one thing, suicide kids are another. “It is just another thing we have to deal with”, said one young Marine currently serving in Afghanistan that requested we not use his name or unit in this report.
