This happy smiling 5 year old child was playing outside his house, in Baghdad, when two masked sub-human beings doused him with gasoline and set him on fire. I can not imagine the pain this child went through and I can only try and imagine the grief his parents must endure every single day. I hugged my six year old a little longer today after reading this story.
I found this story over at Littlegreenfootballs.com who linked it from (read the entire story at) CNN.com
The people of this country have got to wake up and realize the type of animals we are up against in Iraq. Those who praise Allah prior to blowing up American patrols, beheading perceived enemies, kidnapping, torturing and burning children are the same Jihadist animals that hijacked 4 U.S. aircraft and murdered nearly 3000 on 9/11.
We can not fail in Iraq!

great news about the burned Little boy from Baghdad
The Children’s Burn Foundation — a non-profit organization based out of Sherman Oaks, California, that provides support for burn victims locally, nationally and internationally — has agreed to pay for the transportation for Youssif and his family to come to the United States and to set up a fund so you can donate.
The foundation says it will cover all medical costs — from surgeries for Youssif to housing costs to any social rehabilitation that might be needed for him. Surgeries will be performed by Dr. Peter Grossman, a plastic surgeon with the affiliated-Grossman Burn Center who is donating his services for Youssif’s cause.
Officials are still trying to get the appropriate visas for his travels. Youssif could be in the United States for up to a year for the various treatments he needs.
