Just in case you didn't grasp the sheer barbarity of the swine we face in Afghanistan, this ought to do the trick.
Taliban militants have executed a seven-year-old boy they accused of being a spy, it emerged today.
The child was abducted from his home and taken to a neighboring village where he was put on trial.
His captors found him guilty of working for the government.
The child was then hanged in public in the village of Heratiyan, in the southern Sangin district of Helmand province.
Afghanistan's president Hamid Karzai condemned the act as a 'crime against humanity' if proved and said officials were investigating.
They also managed to kill 40 wedding guests with a suicide bomb. It is hard for believe that there is so little regard for human life among them, but they continually prove it and remind us what we are up against. You would think this would eventually cause the same kind of revulsion that led to the Anbar Awakening. Let's hope so.
