It's always troubling to hear that our enemies are training their children to kill us. It's reminiscent of the post WWII stories about how the Japanese had trained their soldiers in brutality.
Obama's misguided overtures to Iran have produced nothing but fear in Americans. And it's no help to see articles like this from thesun.co.uk: war games --Iran opens chilling kids’ military theme park with AK47s where children as young as 8 fire bullets at US flags and effigies of the Israeli PM. Excerpt:
The City of Games for Revolutionary Children park lets youngsters dress up in full combat gear and pretend to be attacking Iran’s enemies like Israel and the West.
They are shown how to fire plastic bullets and artillery shells at US flags and at an effigy of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. ...
There’s also assault courses where they can learn to scale walls and crawl under ropes and through barbed wire while orders are barked at them by trainers and the sound of machine gun fire is played through speakers.
It is aimed at boys aged 8-13 and entry is free to the park near Mashad, Iran’s second largest city.
Not to worry. They will be no match for our own kids when they emerge from their safe spaces full of the confidence they got from their participation trophies.
