Now maybe I'm misreading this thing but doesn't it appear that the Regime is giving these countries a pass on using child soldiers?
I realize this story doesn't involve homosexuals, gun control and mean old gun nuts or nasty religious people trying to keep women from their God given right to free birth control, but you'd think SOMEONE in the media would have picked up on this one.
