I ascribe the children's death to bad parenting.
How difficult is was it to say " Achmed, hurry home with your dung and do not stop and help the wicked insurgents dig holes to place bombs to kill the American servants of Satan, Allah be praised!"
If the use of children as weapons offends you, simply observe that strategy employed in conflicts there and elsewhere.
They prevention of any use of children to support warfare is one of the few reasons I would understand as necessary to wage it.

Women and children (whatever age) used as weapons is not new it has been going on for a long time.

During the bush years when bush was slaughtering one hundred thousand innocent Iraqi civilians your ilk (big battery) told told us war is a dirty business and we have to expect collateral damage.
Now you attempt to make some inane political point about killing children and we are supposed to give a ****?
I thought we weren't supposed to care about civilians dying???
The basis for my position is called doing what is right.
In this case, it is preventing the use of children as combatants by terrorists and criminals by force of arms.
