Omar Khadr was a child soldier who in a war caused the death of some people
who were shooting at him and killing all the people in his group: that's war.
A child associated with an armed force or armed group refers to any person below 18 years of age who is, or who has been, recruited or used by an armed force or armed group in any capacity, including but not limited to children, boys and girls, used as fighters, cooks, porters, spies or for sexual purposes.
Regardless of how children are recruited and of their roles, child
soldiers are victims, whose participation in conflict bears serious implications
for their physical and emotional well-being.

this matter. Moreover the Harper and his people show willingness to violate
international law when it suits them personally.
