The majority of wars today are intrastate conflicts fought with small arms. And the disturbing news is that wherever such conflicts take place, many of those fighting are children..... Snatched from their homes by armed men who force them to carry ammunition, fight and kill, beaten if they refuse. Turning these children into killers, taking away their childhood. Is this what a war consists of now? Should children be fighting? Once a child has become a soldier, that's where the childhood ends. Should there be rules forbidding this to happen no matter what country the child is in. No child deserves to be put through this.
