Children At War

The latest conflicts in Congo brings one horrid monster we had hoped to never hear from again back into the light of the international media. Josef Kony, wanted by the International Criminal Court in The Hague for his war crimes, is re-arming. And that includes not only weapons: children are kidnapped again from their villages to become child soldiers. An estimate of 300 Congolese children have been taken over the last weeks by Kony's LRA rebells.

So, sadly, the comic drawn by Ulli Lust, describing his nightmarish methods of "recrution" of the children has still not become historic quite yet:

"The Battalion of the Virgin Mary" by Ulli Lust (deutsche Version: Die Armee der Jungfrau Maria)

just read this comix in Gambuzine and I was amazed by it. clever and impressive idea of putting "white middle class european kids" instead of "african children"
