Shocker: Taliban use kids as human shields
There is one place west of Kandahar City where they shoot at us every day through a shield of children. They actually stack them up, with 8-year-olds at the front and 15-year-olds at the back."

The brave mujahideen in Afghanistan hide behind little 8 year olds. If a kid is blown up while placing an IED, or shot in cross fire then it's NATO's fault...never the brave mujadhideen's fault.
From Montreal Gazette

A 12-year-old boy caught in the act Friday as he put a homemade bomb under a road in the volatile Zhari District grabbed a baby as a human shield to protect himself from attack from the United States helicopter that spotted him.

The incident, in an area where U.S. forces operate under Canadian command, appears to be part of a Taliban strategy to use youngsters as lookouts or human shields, or to carry out attacks, because they know NATO rules of engagement make troops extremely reluctant to open fire in such situations.

There have been 29 incidents in which children have helped commit attacks or otherwise abetted the Taliban in Afghanistan's four southern provinces since March, according to a document provided by the Canadian military. Eight of the incidents have taken place this month

What they call assymetrical warfare. it's a high density, high performance, low tech form of armor. They, the taliban and similar groups, also use children in more insidious ways. for example, they often use children, grandpas, and little old ladies as low tech, remote sensing devices. A 12 year old with a camera, a notebook and a pencil makes a pretty good substitute for a recon satelite or a predator, and these low tech, remote sensing devices can also be armed. it doesn't take but an hour or two of training to teach a kid how to use a hand grenade, an RPG 7, or and AK 47 or similar weapon. this is how these low lifes counterattack our high tech devices and weaponry. they are of the belief that we, the US and our allies, as the (good guys) won't shoot these low tech armor shields and low tech remote sensing devices. and they're right. the good guys are not supposed to do such heinous things, but that's not what it says in the Geneve Convention. If you put an antiaircraft battery up on the roof of a hospital or an orphanage, the rules of engagment state clearly that it's no longer a hospital, it's an antiaircraft battery, and may be targeted as such. but we still try not to do it unless we're just forced to, (rare circumstances)because they know, as do we, how bad it's going to look on tv with the good guys blowing up a hospital or an orphanage, or shooting through rows of kids to get at the bad guys. it just makes you sick doesn't it?
