Taliban execute 7 year old boy

This is simply unfathomable:

Suspected Taliban militants publicly hanged a 7-year-old boy for spying in the militant stronghold of Helmand province, an Afghan official told the Associated Press.

The child was placed on trial by the Islamic extremist group and later found guilty of working for Afghan President Hamid Karzai's government, the local official said.

Karzai on Thursday condemned the alleged act, calling it a "crime against humanity".


Around the time of the child's reported execution, insurgents also dragged a Kandahar provincial council member, Amir Mohammad Noorzai, from his house and fatally shot him, said local government spokesman Zalmai Ayoubi.

In the past, militants have carried out similar killings of those accused of spying, said Dawoud Ahmadi, the provincial governor's spokesman.

Three years ago, a 70-year-old woman and a child in the Musa Qala district of the province were executed following similar allegations.

These aren't isolated incidents... these are seriously sick and demented people.

They deserve justice... meted out with extreme prejudice.

Yeah, Lee, I know exactly what you mean. The Taliban walked all over W. I sense too that they are really running scared now that Obama is in office. Yep, those child hangings by the Taliban have really decreased in number since tough guy Obama came on the scene. Glad to see you're getting on the bandwagon with the Dems and those preparations for running against Bush for the 2010 elections.

Baron Von Ottomatic:

What's the unfathomable part here? That militant Islamists kill children? Or that it's not a Jewish child?

And what, Lee, you give more of a shit about Afgani children than Iraqi children? Why is that?

Kill Liberals And Muslims? I think we have somebody that serious problems with resentments. Why you are wallowing in toxic feelings that serve no useful purpose

Progressives and conservatives have completely different worldviews but we can learn accept that we are wired differently. I have several conservative friends on Facebook and I do not personally angry when they disagree with my progressive beliefs.

Rick Caird:

Really, Lee. Maybe you didn't notice that Obama can put more resource into Afghanistan because Bush (remember him) went ahead and won Iraq when Obama and Reid told him he couldn't do it. You may also remember that Obama spent a long time dithering over what to do in Afghanistan before he finally half halfheartedly committed substantially fewer troops than requested.

On the other hand, I am sure you knew all this, so I guess your comment was nothing more than trolling.

Sorry Les, but I find it difficult to see much of a difference between what these muslims did and what a lot of lefties have said publicly should be done to conservatives. When you have lefties beating up young conservatives in New Orleans and breaking their legs simply because they are conservative you have abandoned any cover of sanity for your views. There were sufficient lefties here excusing the attack in NO to show us that the left has departed from reason.

Jim Addison:

I see Lee Ward's comments have left the building . . . no doubt he mounted a convincing defense of child execution.

People - especially those in high office who need to understand these things - just do not realize the nature of what we are up against. This is just another of a continuing flow of examples most choose to ignore.

They literally can't comprehend it. They've structured their internal ideology around believing that the countries we're in conflict with and the people who are against us have perfectly valid and justifiable reasons, which can be resolved peacefully through a mix of appeasment and abasement on our part.

They just have to figure out what those against us want the most.

Of course, our destruction doesn't register on that list.

Seems like nobody is better at killing Muslims, than other Muslims.

Jim M,The difference... (Below threshold)

Jim M,
The difference between the Taliban and the American Left, as it was between the Left and their socialist and fascist brothers abroad, is the ability to follow through and get results.

They (American Left) are parlor plotters. Trust fund anarchists.

If there is an Allah, it is this child that he will hold close to his breast. Not the scumbags that think killing the boy is 'doing God's work and earning them virgins'. I don't care what Obama or the UN or anyone else thinks, this was NOT due to America's "arrogance" or anything we could ever do. Nothing can excuse this. This act, like many before it, was pure evil.
