TAMIL TIGERS CONTINUE TO CONSCRIPT CHILD COMBATANTS
Forcibly conscripted under-age combatants undergo arms training in an undisclosed Tamil Tiger training camp. The Sri Lankan Air Force attacked a training such as this a few months ago, killing approx 60 conscripts. The international media and human rights circus went wild attempting to define the attack as a human rights violation by the government.
Whether forcibly or not, once made to bear arms for a terrorist outfit, even innocents become legitimate targets to the armed forces that guard the nation against terrorism. Innocents such as these are truly caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.
