Because freedom can't protect itself
Anation that makes war on children does
not deserve to be called civilised.
Why should he be imprisoned for what he did as a child?
And while we are on the topic of children, I have to give a shout out to my beautiful baby girl Alissa, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH ALISSA :).
But back to the topic of Khadr. In my opinion, we should not judge, despite the fact that he may have been responsible for the deaths and misery of many.
The hijackers alledged to have taken aircraft into the Pentagon and WTC buildings 1 and 2 were said to have been Saudi, not Afghan. Why did the United States invade Iraq and Afghanistan countries (shooting children like Khadr) without having been attacked by Iraq and Afghanistan? Was Khadr defending his village from an act of war by an invading army?
