It is one of the most shocking images from the Syrian war. An eight-year-old boy draws deeply on a cigarette, the small fingers of his other hand clutching a an AK-47 rifle that balances awkwardly against his chest.

OMG, doesn’t he realize that cigarettes can kill?
Children under 10 smoke all over the cruddier parts of the world.
Quick - send Bloomberg to Syria! He’ll fix this!
Child soldiers? YAWN.
Starvation and social disorder? Not an issue.
A CHILD SMOKING???!??! CALL OUT THE FREAKIN U.N.!!!!!!!!!!!11!!
Dear liberal busy bodies,
If I’m fighting in a war, at 10 years old, and I decide I want a smoke
THEN I AM GOING TO ****ING SMOKE! GOT IT? GOOD! AND IF YOU DON’T GOT IT, YOU CAN SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND!
They blow up so fast.
the part about smoking is a joke, right?
My husband figured this picture was a response to all the horror that the left in this country made over that sweet looking kid who had social services at the family door by posing with his new gun.
Kind of an in yer face, you pussies to America, from Syria.
Is that a 7-bullet magazine on the AK-47, Gov. Cuomo?
That’s the least of his problems...
Heh. Could be.
Kids in Syrian face a much tougher “School of Hard Knocks” than their American counterparts, that’s for sure.
And on a school night too!
That kid has a cold dead stare. Frightening.
I’m more concerned about him and his pals continuously shouting “Allah Akbar!!”
A true Jihadi in the making.
This brought back a memory.
30 years ago, I was in Metullah, Israel, with a group of Christian pastors.
We were meeting and greeting a brave young Christian Man who operated a Bible radio station in Southern Lebanon.
The pastors had a real tough time with the fact that this gentleman (like MOST Mid-East people) SMOKED like a chimney!
A few months later, some muzzies in a car bomb took out the radio station, killing its two operators, one of whom was the “Smoking Man”.
Now tell me, who was doing the Will of His Father?
Kid, you are SO grounded!
At that age my dad used to have me go in the store to get him a pack of cigs. Didn’t smoke them though.
Are they Newports like Øbama sucks on?
Newports is a US “urban” thing.
My guess would be some local brand.
He’s celebrating having a Super Big Gulp, because he’s too young for unprotected sex.
Well, Junior is going to have a hard time hitting anything with that weapon. This is a staged photo.
If Im fighting in a war, at 10 years old, and I decide I want a smoke
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Well, us ‘normal’ civilized people know what is right because we are smart enough to NOT ALLOW a person of 20 1/2 with a tour (or two) in ‘Indian Country’ the right to sit down and drink a beer in a bar. /s...
I'm not sure which will kill him sooner... the smoke or the gun...I just hope he'll survive!!
I am truly beginning to wonder if we normal civilized people actually know anything at all anymore.
You know it strikes me that this 10 year old smoker armed with a >>weapon of war<< is man enough to fight for the future of his country...
Whereas our 10 year olds are taught about gay marriage, glowbull warming, and are suspended from school for nibbling pop tarts in an improper fashion and for brining butter knives to school to cut their pears.
I’m starting to feel like I am in the wrong place.
