Child Soldiers

Landmines        Human Rights/Children

As many as 300,000 children as young as 8 years of age are forced to be fighting soldiers.  These children are even used by the 'pigs of war' to clear landmines.  The world's media, including Mr Murdoch and Mr Packer remain silent and the weapons dealers make their fortunes.  Old saying: If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

One would never expect the President of the United States to show any concern for these children however, not even our own Prime Minister bothers to give them a mention, but they say that he does go to church.  Very big on the rights of the unborn child!  But once they are born?

Unless the world�s leaders and media speak up it will remain business as usual.  If you remain silent you are an accomplice; and if that upsets you.  Good!
