Suicide bombing as kid’s game

March 2, 2011

Saw this video yesterday on War is Boring. This morning Drudge Report linked to an article on Daily Mail about the same video.


People are divided on how to see the video. Some say the kids are glamorizing violence while others are saying the kids are role-playing in order to deal with all the violence they have seen.

From the Guardian article

Pakistani media commentator Fasi Zaka called the latest suicide bomber clip “the most amazing amateur video I’ve ever seen”. He said: “It’s disturbing but also sophisticated and creative – a one-camera shot that captures it all. They are reproducing what they see in their lives around them.”
