KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- A 7-year-old boy was executed by the Taliban in a brutal act of retribution this week, after his grandfather dared to resist the insurgency’s iron rule.

Afghan officials said the boy was accused of spying for U.S. and NATO forces and hanged from a tree in southern Afghanistan.

Daoud Ahmadi, the spokesman for Helmand’s provincial governor, said the murder came just days after the boy’s grandfather, Abdul Woodod Alokozai, spoke out against militants in their hometown.

“I know his father and I know his grandfather,” Ahmadi said. “His grandfather is a tribal elder in the village and the village is under the control of the Taliban. His grandfather said some good things about the government and he formed a small group of people to stand against the Taliban.

“That’s why the Taliban killed his grandson in revenge.”

Now, I am the first to admit this came off Fox News. However, to Huffington Post's Credit, they covered it as well. It is not one the three main Muslim sites I checked as of yet.

Ridiculous statement. You are comparing one murder, to ann International Act Of War, where another country killed one of our own.

Guess you don't care if Israel kills Americans? Is there anything Israel has done which you thing was wrong, of too inhumane?

Do you think this is the first time the Taliban have executed someone for cooperating with the enemy?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Suspected Taliban militants have executed a 7-year-old boy, accusing him of spying for the government, officials in southern Afghanistan said Thursday.
The execution took place Tuesday in the Sangin district of Helmand province, said Dawoud Ahmadi -- the provincial governor's spokesman.
In the past, militants have carried out similar killings of those accused of spying, Ahmadi said.
<u>Three years ago, a 70-year-old woman and a child in the Musa Qala district of the province were executed following the same allegations,</u> he said.
During a news conference Thursday, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said officials were looking into reports of the execution and said he condemned the act if it is confirmed to be true. </div></div>




Did the bombs dropped in Iraq or in Gaza distinguish between adult and child? The guilty or the innocent?
<u>Were their deaths not called 'collateral damage' by the US Govt?</u>

The Taliban might say the same thing.

When Bush turned to Iraq before the job was done in Afg, he left those Afghans who trusted him at the mercy of the Taliban.
This is the result.

[color:#000066]What is the difference between killing a child with a bomb, from afar, and killing a child up close. The child is still gone. When we went into a country and prosecuted shock and awe, did you think that children weren't going to be murdered?

This is the problem with the love of war by hawks. More are killed in the long run, immorally, over outrage at previous immoral killing. Who killed the most Iraqi's, Bush or Saddam?

Killing children is always wrong, regardless of who does it or how it is done.

Some people seem to think that killing children, when it has the title of "War" on it, is justified, just part of the collateral damage.

You highlight this horrendous killing of one child, but ask yourself, how many little Iraqi children were slaughtered by Bush, in his war for oil contracts? How many more Palestinian children have been killed than Israeli children? How does one keep count, when press reports are suspect?

What about all the children dyiing in our country and around the world compliments of dangerous chemicals and poisons in our environment. If it's for business, then that's OK, too?

I find it interesting how the right moves their line around. If money is the goal, kill away, whether it's with bombs in a war, or industry poison that gives a child cancer, all is justified when linked to their love of money, and their automatic so called "Free Enterprise" respect for the skum at the top, pockets bulging with money, but no concerns over what kind of damage they are doing to others who have to live in their muck after they spread their industrial poisons around in the environment.

Reagan set this nation on path in which money and enterprise trumped safety regulations set in motion by Carter, who had regulated for the safety and health of Americans.

How many have died since, because Reagan pushed the idea that government should back off from regulating the toxins created by corporate Greed.

For a party which pretends to be on God's side, the right, since Reagan, has shown no genuine concerns over the environment, public safety for consumers, through regulations, and if they could, they'd fix it so that a doctor could cut off the wrong leg, and no one could sue him for it, their hatred for lawyers is so huge, and illogical.

Saddam killed millions ... but, once again, those victims don't count to the far left anymore.

I remember a time when the far left bleated incessantly about Saddam killing Iraqis as proof that B-B-B-BOOOOSH!!!! because he didn't depose Saddam.

Brown people are, as always, merely props on the political stage to the far left. Once they no longer serve the agenda they are discarded and forgotten.

Killing children is always wrong, regardless of who does it or how it is done.

Some people seem to think that killing children, when it has the title of "War" on it, is justified, just part of the collateral damage.

You highlight this horrendous killing of one child, but ask yourself, how many little Iraqi children were slaughtered by Bush, in his war for oil contracts? How many more Palestinian children have been killed than Israeli children? How does one keep count, when press reports are suspect?

What about all the children dyiing in our country and around the world compliments of dangerous chemicals and poisons in our environment. If it's for business, then that's OK, too?

I find it interesting how the right moves their line around. If money is the goal, kill away, whether it's with bombs in a war, or industry poison that gives a child cancer, all is justified when linked to their love of money, and their automatic so called "Free Enterprise" respect for the skum at the top, pockets bulging with money, but no concerns over what kind of damage they are doing to others who have to live in their muck after they spread their industrial poisons around in the environment.

Reagan set this nation on path in which money and enterprise trumped safety regulations set in motion by Carter, who had regulated for the safety and health of Americans.

How many have died since, because Reagan pushed the idea that government should back off from regulating the toxins created by corporate Greed.

For a party which pretends to be on God's side, the right, since Reagan, has shown no genuine concerns over the environment, public safety for consumers, through regulations, and if they could, they'd fix it so that a doctor could cut off the wrong leg, and no one could sue him for it, their hatred for lawyers is so huge, and illogical.

I kind of like the fact that we carpet bombed Germany and nuked Japan.

The point of war is to be victorious. Not to be politically correct. </div></div>
