If you've seen the movie or the trailer for American Sniper, Chris Kyle had to shoot a boy, who looked less than ten year of age, as he approached an American squad. The kid was handed the bomb by a woman, presumedly his mother. A mother would send her child to his death. And Kyle, completely justified, had to fire the shot to send him to his grave. Chris Kyle had a conscious, unlike that woman. This is what we are dealing with.
Another example of how the savagery of our enemy is not to be underestimated. And a great example of the courage of the police in Iraq. Holding the boy and stripping him of the bomb. This is unreal.

...‘There is a dangerous campaign tonight against Kirkuk,’ a security official told the network.
It has been claimed the boy was planning to blow himself up outside a Shia mosque. The belt was later detonated safely away from members of the public.
Earlier this year it was revealed that ISIS had released an app teaching the Arabic alphabet to its ‘cubs of the caliphate’ – using cartoon images of weaponry.
The terror group uses pictures of tanks, ammunition and swords to help children remember certain letters in its bizarre learning aid.
It is the latest move by ISIS aimed at indoctrinating children in its Iraq and Syria stronghold.
Videos have previously been released of boys – dubbed ‘Cubs of the Caliphate’ – being put through rigorous training regimes and even being ordered to carry out brutal executions.
Meanwhile, Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan said it was likely that ISIS was behind the attack which saw a bomber, thought to be aged between 12 and 14, blow up people dancing in the street at a party in the city of Gaziantep last night.
