    This is nothing new. The same situation existed in Vietnam and just about every other guerrilla “war” ever fought. It's happening to the Russians in their engagement with Islamic rebels. FARC in Colombia have used children. And, it's our guys – and gals – who see this as a quandary because of our American values and how we cherish our children. We don't understand how adults can send children out to become martyrs like that.
