US Trails Behind World In Aptitude Of Child Soldiers


From the theonion.com (a satire site):

After a shocking new study finds U.S. children lag far behind their international peers in subjects like rifle assembly and mine defusing.

“An average Sudanese child can field strip a Type-81 assault rifle by the time he is in seventh grade. An American child could not until he enlisted in the military”

    I’m not sure the video is entirely accurate. Take a look at http://doubletapper.blogspot.com/2008/01/he-dad-must-be-really-proud.html and see what I’m talking about.

    haha, thats a great video. Not to mention that western children are taught accuracy, sometime that I do not think it taught to the children running around 30 year old AKs in Africa

    kids not knowing there rifle drills is nothing bad, personnaly i,d be ashamed if a british media group thought this was relevant, only in america do people think children should play with fire arms. ridiculous… Ive never heard anything as foolish as this.

    Dude…it was satire. The Onion is not a real news agency. /facepalm…

    And next time you comment on our country do have the courtesy to capitalize America. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was only an oversight due to a deficit in your education, in that case I pity you.
