Barbarians, Plain and Simple

The Islamists do not think life is sacred, something to be protected, they are contently killing innocent women and children in their insane goal of conquering the world. Sending their wives out as suicide bombers is one thing, but little children?
FORWARD OPERATING BASE THUNDER, Afghanistan — The story of a 6-year-old Afghan boy who says he thwarted an effort by Taliban militants to trick him into being a suicide bomber provoked tears and anger at a meeting of tribal leaders.

The account from Juma Gul, a dirt-caked child who collects scrap metal for money, left American soldiers dumbfounded that a youngster could be sent on such a mission. Afghan troops crowded around the boy to call him a hero.

Though the Taliban dismissed the story as propaganda, at a time when U.S. and NATO forces are under increasing criticism over civilian casualties, both Afghan tribal elders and U.S. military officers said they were convinced by his dramatic account.

Juma said that sometime last month Taliban fighters forced him to wear a vest they said would spray out flowers when he touched a button. He said they told him that when he saw American soldiers, "throw your body at them."

What kind of religion uses children to kill for them? Not a religion of peace, and not a religion that claims to be civilized. These Taliban Islamists are barbarians, plain and simple, thus they need to be treated as such, no surrender, no quarter, eradicate them all as you would an rapid dog threatening your family.
