The Taliban has developed a strategy to use children to carry out suicide bombings. They recruit these children from a very young age and begin to engraining their thoughts that suicide bombings are they way to carry out their religious beliefs. The Taliban leaders tell these children that lies and make them believe that if they set the bomb off that is strapped to the children's bodies that they will go to paradise. These children are for the most part illiterate and are told that the Quran and their profit tells them that it is ok to do this.

These children live in a third world and are less than fortunate children. They come from a society that does not have much. They are easily influenced in believing what these monsters want them to believe.

No where in the Quran does it say that this is ok. They are acting immorally on all sense of the word. They are not only taken the lives of thousands of innocent men, women and children but they are send their children into do the dirty work.

This immoral act that is continued today on a constant basis is despicable and cowardly. These poor innocent children do not have the ability or the means to challenge these authority figures that are telling them these lies.

The Taliban has many avenues that they can go in the fight against whoever they are fighting but they choose to take an morally wrong way. There is no remorse in their acts of terror, and that is exactly what they are is terror! If these poor kids were able to see the aftermath of their acts and get some guidance from a humanly source they might be able to be saved.

The world is a terrible place to live with these monster that have the ability to brain wash these children. These so called men are nothing but cowards. They are despised by their own people for carrying out these acts of terror. The general populous of Afghanistan and Pakistan do not even know when the Taliban does what they do. They have all been damaged, hurt, and lost many family members and most due to a child thinking they were going to paradise if the commit this act of terror.

Children all over the world should not be subjected to such acts of terror. They should be able to play with their friends, enjoy their family and just enjoy normal every day life. There is a big difference between normal every day life from one society to the next but there is one thing in common, that children are innocent. The thought that certain people can take advantage of their innocence and continue to take advantage of their innocent makes me sick to my stomach. Children are just little people and no matter what your religion, your beliefs or where you live in the world they should be able to make their own moral choices with some guidance from a moral roll model with their best interest in mind. The children of the world are the future of the world. With the beliefs and teaching that the Taliban has passed on to these children they will be scared for life, if they make it through their teenage years.

The Taliban developed this strategy to get into big crowds and commit mass suicide. They recruited the children because they were rarely searched. If you think about it, sporting arenas and the concert halls, women and children always make it through security with minimal, if any problems. If you take this outside the USA it is no different. In order to by-pass the the twenty different security check points, in the time square area, the Taliban needed to come up with something clever. They chose to use children. No one would suspect a six year old boy to be strapped with bombs.

Children are less likely to question what they are doing because they only know what they are told. This makes it easier for the Taliban to kill so many people. The only thing they have lost is a child.

If you were to tell an adult to strap on the same vest full of bombs they would be a lot more hesitant. Chances are they would not do it. The adults have read the Quran, or have enough knowledge about it to know that they are not going to paradise. The adults will also have a harder time making it past security than the children.

If the Taliban believes that the results of this mass- suicide will ultimately be a positive one then the loss of a child's life is not that big of a price to pay. The thought of children committing a mass suicide may be considered morally wrong here, but the moral standards according to the Taliban may be a lot different.

Many of the children will not make it to there teenage years because they only have one job, and that job is to kill. If they do make it to their teenage years, chances are they will not believe they are wrong because they thought it was right to commit this mass suicide in the first place.

Adults have had plenty of experience in the world and are more educated about the quran and there beliefs. They know what the quran says and they know "right from wrong" or at least what they were told when they were at the same age as the suicide bombers. If these children were brought up, and told every day that this is what they are suppose to do, then that's what they are suppose to do.

Taking that one child's life according to the Taliban could be for a "good" cause.

Dude. Why don't you just move to the forums section to post this stuff? It would be a lot easier then making several debates about the same thing and having a secondary and even third account to accept your own debate so you can do... What exactly? Just to get your point out there? Like I said move it to the forums and please stop spamming the debate pages.
