According to some fairly reliable sources.... I've read about Children as suicide bombers....Muslim's believe they are persecuted by the west. So it has become common practice to allow the young who haven't had families yet, to be spared the hell of living long lives of desperation. It's some really weird thought processess, but that's the take I got from it. The facts are we have no clue what it's like to think like these guys do.

I think it was last years they just took (seized by force) several women with down syndrome, stuffed bags under the skirts to make them appear pregnant. strapped explosives on em and forced them to walk into market area. their killers have had it with this jihad shit. they are grabbing their families and deserting.

There were also incidents of mentally-retarded men who were sent to detonate suicide bombs. There was a case in Israel a couple of years ago where the man in question was able to communicate with Israeli security and they were able to remove his bomb vest without detonation, saving his life. That was Hamas, rather than Al Qaeda, but there's not a dime's worth of difference between them.

Now, would anyone consider the use of children as suicide bombers to be an atrocity worth reporting? You'd think that the NY Times, which ran countless stories on Abu Ghraib, would have been interested in this, but a search of the paper's website found absolutely zero hits for the keywords "Children of Paradise" and Al Qaeda (Searching for "Children of Paradise" alone produced several pages of hits referring to an Ingmar Bergman movie by that name, but nothing in Iraq). I'd be willing to see a return of the fairness doctrine if it meant that the NY Times had to hire some conservatives.

Al Qaeda won't hit the NY Times. It's their primary source of intelligence.

I have to quibble on this one. The NY Times provides Al Qaeda with intel on US government efforts to defeat them through publication of classified information. Al Qaeda provides the Times with propaganda.

We've known of this for years. JI have no compunction of using anyone at all...and they have child bombers and fighters in the Philippines.

Not good.

It can work both ways, I guess?

A bit heartbreaking and disturbing whenever I see 10-13 year old kids screaming "freedom" and Allahu Akbar. And when asked they don't know shit what they're fighting. Some boys do know it's for "Allah". They're brainswashed as hell. :(

Arabs teach their kids the most mind-numbing hatred imaginable. A year ago, Disney actually had to threaten to sue the PA for creating a Mickey Mouse knockoff that preached murder.
