we have to introspect and see what we do or our country does to contribute to such an abomination anywhere in the world. Many of us will not sleep easy if we can see the connection between ourselves and this kid. Its a shame on humanity, not one country.

i hope we do not see this as an issue pertinent to only a country or religion. It is not a Muslim only issue even if only Muslims are in this situation. We have a brain and supposedly intelligence, lets use it to see how they arrived at this situation while considering the contribution made by us or our countries, not starting with pointing fingers.
by the law of karma, it will come to bite us, or worse our children or their children. We are humans first above all other classifications. No other creature on earth does such evil to another of its own species or shows such apathy, even if it is helpless.

This isn't about a country at all!   Its about a child and anyone with a heart or who is a parent themselves reads this story and feels pity and sadness for the child period.

This story reminds me of stories from Chechnya.

Why should anyone care about hurting a country's feelings or reputation?  Or even that of the religion?

Wrong is wrong no matter who the players are.

I understand that people here do think in terms of national pride and respect (whatever).  But ignore those people.  They don't count for anything.  

Its wrong to use children in war.  That goes if you are christian, atheist, muslim, american, chinese, russian, syrian or whatever.   'Who' a person is does not matter on this particular subject.

Using children in war is wrong and everyone can say that its wrong.  And no one ever should think of the country or religion first before making a condemnation.
