thats the topic of my thesis. actually, at the first times I really interested to take this themes, because it's very unique and no one ever discuss it.
But, after I study it deeply, I begun to love with my write in those thesis. Yeah..I begun to really like and interesting with child soldiers.
maybe we ever heard about the involvement children in armed conflict. children are using in every part of the war. They treat very unfair, abusive, and always get torture.
Not only the rebels or opposition who using them, but also the government army sometimes using them with large scale..they recruit children through conscription, abducting, or even child soldiers involve in the military as a volunteer.
almost all of African country using them in their internal conflict, and the next, Asian countries (Myanmar is the biggest record). but beside that... the developing country like US, Norway, British also recruit them in their army . US using them when Iraqi offences...
but I specifically my study in Uganda. Uganda is the largest country in African who keep child soldiers. They Use both by Lord Resistance Army (rebels)and Uganda People Defence Forces (Uganda Army). about 3 from 4 children in Ancholiland (district in northern Uganda) vanish because of abducted and offences. Uganda children also do a long journey to looking for a shelter in order to avoid from abducting. This habitual activity often called night commuters. the total of night commuters is so high in Uganda.
in 2006, ICC want to arrest LRA, so LRA demobilized their child soldiers and other captivity. but until now, the captive of LRA still remain, especially in border or Sudan.
by my story I like to call u, to remain our emphaty to suffer children like these. we don't have to do a hard thing, just try to change our lifestyle. coz, so many people difficult to reach a proper life and happiness. be happy and grateful with our life. God bless us and them
