This has left me feeling both furious and deeply saddened at the same time. It shows how barbaric the Islam terrorists are. I won’t say ‘have become’, because they have always been like this on the whole. It’s only because the cause of Islam is being spread much more aggressively now that we are seeing it much more clearly. That they would use children so callously shows an utter disrespect for life, and the lives of even their own. The fact that many on the extreme left support, or at least make excuses for, this kind of thing shows something quite clearly about them as well.
Insurgents in Iraq detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle with two children in the back seat after US soldiers let it through a Baghdad checkpoint over the weekend, a senior US military official said Tuesday.
The vehicle was stopped at the checkpoint but was allowed through when soldiers saw the children in the back, said Major General Michael Barbero of the Pentagon’s Joint Staff.
“Children in the back seat lowered suspicion. We let it move through. They parked the vehicle, and the adults ran out and detonated it with the children in the back,” Barbero said.
