Something to ponder

A recent dispatch from Michael Yon at FOXNews:

But then he explained about a boy whom he said the Taliban forced to step on an IED just down the road from here. Apparently, according to Afghans, the Taliban may have been testing a new bomb made from a soda bottle. The boy’s name is Jalil, and our people estimate that Jalil is 6 to 8-years-old. Jalil was picking grapes with his brother when the Taliban, according to reporting, told the boy to step on the bomb. It blew off his right leg below the knee, leaving hamburger on the stump, and fractured his femur.

I think that has to make one wonder if the message of Anders Behrin Breivik is all that wrong. Pity he had such a stupidly destructive way of getting it noticed.
