It's a good thing I work nights... I don't think I can sleep after reading this one. Children used in Iraqi militant attack
WASHINGTON, March 20 (Reuters) - A U.S. general on Tuesday said Iraqi insurgents used children in a suicide attack this weekend, raising worries that the insurgency has adopted a new tactic to get through security checkpoints with bombs.Maj. Gen. Michael Barbero, deputy director for regional operations in the Joint Staff at the Pentagon, said adults in a vehicle with two children in the backseat were allowed through a Baghdad checkpoint. The adults then abandoned the vehicle and detonated it with the children still inside, he said. "Children in the back seat, lower suspicion, we let it move through," he said. "They parked the vehicle, the adults run out and detonate it with the children in the back."

This is not new. One of the guys I work with said when he was over there last summer, one of his coworkers lost several fingers when some little Iraqi children ran up to their HMMWV asking for candy. He stuck his hand out the window to throw candy and a bomb pack on one of the little kids went off killing the kids and injuring him and others in the vehicle. You can't possibly tell me that these terrorists convinced these little kids that they were part of a "Holy War". They lied and told the kids to go get candy from the friendly Americans then blew them up. I can't even begin to explain how I loath terrorist. Anyone who tries to glorify or justify their behavior is deranged.
