Well we all know that this has been going on for a long time now, but why is it just now becoming a "problem" so to say? Like everyone is becoming concerned with it and thinking that it is wrong? I am not saying I am for it, but if we look back into history...WWII mainly. In Russia especially in 1941-1942 the Soviets were throwing kids as young as 11 years old into battle to fight the Nazi's and same goes for the Germans in 1945 children were being called upon to defend the father land b/c all the "real" soldiers had been killed in Russia.
This is the same thing going on in Afirca, all the "Real" soldiers were killed a long time ago and they are now taking children and putting them into war. The Russians and Germans also kidnapped children to throw them into battle, but it was frosted with Patriotism and Nationalism.
So my question is this... why are people just now getting involved with this? Was it b/c everyone believed that it was "All hands on deck" in WWII and that since the west isn't fighting n Africa (actively) that it is now time to be concerned with it?
What are your thoughts?
