Taliban buying children, turning them into suicide bombers

Just as child soldiers were fielded in the genocides in Liberia and Sierra Leone, and children were (ab)used by Palestinian Arabs as human shield to force Israeli’s planes to turn back, Children are again being abused, perhaps this time in more outrageous fashion, in Pakistan – as suicide bombers! As reported in the Washington Times, (July 2): U.S. Defense Department and Pakistani officials have confirmed that Pakistan's top Taliban leader, Baitullah Mehsud, is buying children as young as 7 to serve as suicide bombers in the growing spate of attacks against Pakistani, Afghan and U.S. targets. The going price for a child bomber is between $7,000 to $14,000 - still much cheaper than a jet bomber
