Militants Hang 8-Year Old Boy In Southern Afghanistan By David Ariosto, CNN July 24, 2011

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- An 8 year-old boy was hanged by militants in Afghanistan's Helmand province after the boy's father -- a police officer in the southern city of Gereshk -- refused to comply with militants' demands to provide them with a police vehicle, officials said. Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned the hanging, saying "this action is not permitted in any culture or any religions," according to a statement Sunday, which provided details of the incident.
Karzai said he has ordered local authorities to root out the militants and arrest them "as soon as possible."
The boy was kidnapped Friday. It was unclear when he was killed. The incident comes amid a recent wave of attacks on local officials who are considered anti-Taliban. Less than two weeks ago, Ahmed Wali Karzai, Karzai's half-brother and a provincial council chief in neighboring Kandahar, was killed in his home by a longtime bodyguard.
Elsewhere on Sunday, formal ceremonies marking the handover of security to Afghan forces took place in Kabul and Panjshir province.

I hate to say it, but this is more evidence that Afghanistan will eventually end just the way Vietnam ended.
Because once US forces leave, the Taliban will use this technique to win over village after village. No Afghan policeman or mayor will risk his family for the benefit of the corrupt politicians in Kabul. And so once again we'll see helicopters take off from the US embassy roof.
The folly of limited-war and nation-building...
No Problem,They are here now ,thanks to GW Bush and Barry the Black Muslim Obama, and Bro Holder will give them a Nasty “Mail in Ticket” when they do that here!
SOP attack the families of those opposed to terror.
Fortunately, your post is incoherent at best.

KABUL (BNO NEWS) Suspected members of the Taliban on Friday hung the 8-year-old son of a local police commander in southern Afghanistan after ordering his father to surrender, according to a news report on Saturday.
The Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA) news agency reported that the young boy was kidnapped by militants in the Greshk district of Helmand province on Tuesday. They had ordered his father to surrender to the Taliban or else the boy would be executed.
The militants had warned his father, who is a local police commander, to surrender with his police vehicle and weapons, otherwise they would kill his son, provincial governor spokesman Daud Ahmadi told DPA. The boy was hung on Friday.

Whats an illiterate idiot have to do around here to be called Taliban anyway?
this is pure evil.....we are seeing it and the world just schrugs....
I was right 10 years ago and I am right now...that miserable festering Islamofacsist rabid wound of a country needs to be glass right now. Satan’s corporate developmental office is there. They will continue to visit much misery on the world....
You are so right. But if tomorrow an American soldier shoves a Taliban prisoner, it would be headline news. And Obama would demand an immediate investigation. And the UN would pass a resolution condemning the shoving.
As the “One” would say “let me be clear” that would be smoking, glowing glass..I love the smell of vaporized Islamists in the morning......
