We've been told time and again the Islam is the religion of peace, right? Well, according to the Washington Times, the Taliban in Pakistan is BUYING (not recruiting) children as young as seven to be used as suicide bombers in targeting Pakistani, Afghan, and U.S. troops.
The top Taliban leader in Pakistan, Baitullah Mehsud, has been buying the children for anywhere from $7,000 to $14,000, according to a Pakistani official who wished to remain anonymous. The average per capita income in Pakistan is approximately $2,600 a year, and the amount paid depends on how quickly they are needed and how close they need to get to their target. Mehsud has two bounties on his head: Pakistan has offered $615,300 for his capture (dead or alive; I prefer dead), and the U.S. has offered $5 million. I'd give this nutjob up for free.
While suicide bombers are not uncommon in Islamic terrorist conflicts, the age of these ones seems to be. Most other conflicts (Palestinian-Israeli) have had suicide bombers in their late teens to early 20's.
I have just one question: Where the hell is Amnesty International??? I forgot. They're busy boo-hooing about waterboarding at Club Gitmo. In the meantime, innocent children are often being kidnapped from their families and sold to this monster. The liberals always seem to look the other way when it comes to innocent life (PLANNED PARENTHOOD, NARAL, and NOW).
If Obamarx (not a typo) is so concerned about "the children", why isn't he condemning the actions of his fellow Muslim brother? And don't tell me he may not know about it. This man makes sure he's got his nose into everything. Your silence speaks volumes, Barry. That could be construed as a sign of agreement on your part, Dear Leader.
Our brave men and women are over there fighting for the freedom of people who have grown up in a culture where women are stoned to death for being raped, girls are genitally mutilated, and tolerance is unheard of. They shouldn't have to worry about dying when giving an angelic child a chocolate bar.
The Taliban needs to be given a decision: Start respecting human life or every one of your mosques is going to glow in the dark. Feeling lucky, Mehsud???
