The word child and soldier are two words that shouldn't be used together. Most people think of Africa when they talk of child soldiers but it is far from the only country to deploy children in military and combat affairs, and the numbers are astounding. I think a good starting step to decreasing those numbers should begin with the international community declaring it an official "War Crime".
If you mean children with weapons trained to kill I think it's terrible. They are not old enough to decide for themselves what they want to fight for. I also believe it is a dirty ploy. I don't know if I could return fire at children even though they are firing at me. Why can't the enemy just stand up and fight me like a man instead of sending children in?
Childhood should be a time of innocence.....not 'hate' indoctrinated....
