The Young Soldiers of Somalia and the War on Terrorism

Can somebody remind me how my tax dollars wound up going to pay 12-year-old Somali boys to walk around with rifles and, when circumstances seem to warrant it, kill people?

Oh, wait, it’s all coming back — which is good, because the lessons go well beyond Somalia, and help explain why the war on terrorism hasn’t gone well lately.
