Child Soldiers in America Disguised by Well Known Foundation
I was sent a link by a good friend on Youtube of a disturbing article from The New York Times www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2009/05/13/us/0000EXPLORERS_index.html that details a new elite force set up by the Boy Scouts of America. The new branch designed to so called fight terrorists and maintain border control is outfitted with children. These same children are also suited up in full battle gear resembling a sqaudron of Special Forces and armed with air rifles. The image is alarming of children in battle mode especially since it is happening in North America, when you see pictures of child soldiers from other nations it strikes a nerve. Is this the new phase in war machines. Start them young and title them "Explorers" when really they are being trained as "Enforcers"
The issue is children should be children and not super soldiers.
