GUEST,282RA BS: Ridiculous propaganda (77* d) BS: Ridiculous propaganda 26 Jun 07


FORWARD OPERATING BASE THUNDER, Afghanistan - The story of a 6-year-old Afghan boy who says he thwarted an effort by Taliban militants to trick him into being a suicide bomber provoked tears and anger at a meeting of tribal leaders.

The account from Juma Gul, a dirt-caked child who collects scrap metal for money, left American soldiers dumbfounded that a youngster could be sent on such a mission. Afghan troops crowded around the boy to call him a hero.

Though the Taliban dismissed the story as propaganda, at a time when U.S. and NATO forces are under increasing criticism over civilian casualties, both Afghan tribal elders and U.S. military officers said they were convinced by his dramatic account.

This is the biggest load of garbage I've read in a while. what is the Bush administration trying to pull? When have we EVER seen small children used as suicide bombers???

How did this boy come into contact with terrorists????

Where and when did this happen??

They say they believe him but based on what???

Maybe they're trying to mask the fact that the Taliban aren't going away, that opium production higher than it's ever been, that we are losing that country faster than we are losing Iraq.
