Default Taliban suicide school for kids

This is just such a lovely video. While watching this video I was thinking they needed kids since these kids wouldn't ask the one question I would first think of and that is.

If this is the most honorable way to die for Allah then why haven't these men teaching it done it already?

What use is power if all of the leaders are dead?

They send the poor - like in every war, regardless of the circumstances. Itīs perfidiously to brainwash kids for their goals, similar to the child-soldiers in Africa. If thereīs something like Hell mentioned in Coran, Taliban belong there.

I just reread this and something popped into my mind. Street gangs that actively recruit young teens are also just like this. The kids are usually poor, many virtually uneducated, and have known nothing but violence their entire lives. They are easily recruited into the ranks knowing that death and definitely pain are awaiting them but join non the less. I guess we kind of have a form of the taliban "non religious" in our own back yard.

What you're missing is the fact that they are "easily recruited" because the groups were formed by people exactly like them.

Indeed...it's easier at times to be 'taken in' by someone who you identify with on some level.
