Iraq: Children Used in Car Bombing

OakLeaf posts about this event reported today from Iraq. 

It seems that insurgents are finding a way around the tighter security measures started as part of “The Surge”.  The Pentagon reported, “Children in the back seat lowered suspicion. We let it move through. They parked the vehicle, and the adults ran out and detonated it with the children in the back.”  This seems to be a new tactic that may be employed. 

I suppose these children now have 72 virgins.  Is this a sign of insanity or determination may depend on vantage point.  A cynical reply would be, two more future terrorists not to worry about, but that would be harshly cynical and close to unhuman. 

Oak Leaf went on to comment, “Remember the song, “I Hope the Russians Love Their Children Too”?  I know who does not.  I pray he is wrong, but I am worried he could be right.

  1. I am saddened that you had to witness such a horrible act.
    It is even sadder that you got dragged into the “Bush War”
    Forced to be a participant in these events.
    when all you wanted to do is defend our country.

  3. Notice how the two adults ran away leaving the children to die?! Were those two Muslim men not so secure in their gifts as martyrs that they feared death?

    “But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18:6.

    Whether they believed or not, I can’t think that come judgment time this kind of thing (unless there has been sincere repentance) will be looked kindly upon.

  4. This just shows the type of people we are fighting over there. How are you supposed to appease people that could do something like this?
