furthermore (as i'm sure some of you know) the USA has not signed the UN convention for the rights of a child allowing the execution of minors

http://www.amnestyusa.org/abolish/juvexec.html

what are your views on this? personally i'm disgusted that a country that prides itself on promoting and fighting for freedom and justice around the world can consider lowering itself to the execution and imprisonment of minors in such a way.

Life is full of tragedies. This one is quite minor in comparison to some of the larger ones.

yes i have, but im not in a position to get my information from anywhere else am i?

my bottom line is that no one should be executed for crimes, let alone children. futhermore the most powerful country on this planet should show more regard to peoples basic human rights if it wants any credibilty

Human rights? Most humans are idiots - they don't deserve rights.

I don't think that everyone holds humanity in common. I know I don't, at least.

They're POWs, they belong in a camp. As if they'd treat one of our troops as nice as this, anyway...

I'm never sure when you post comments like this whether you're serious.
If you are then I despair if you ever get into medicine!

Yes - just because they're under 16 doesn't mean that they'd be any less dangerous with a bomb.

if you think it is ok for children to be held as POWs you must be able to accept all situations
