The film above is disturbing to watch, yet it is gripping.
How do the rebels get kids into their ranks and become brutal heartless killers themselves? The rebels go in and slaughter the father, mother and siblings leaving one child left, and then these young boys, some as young as 5 years old bereft of any family but the rebels themselves, get pulled into their 'new family.
These cut throats could be the missing twin of the Hamas, Al Qaida, and other terror groups. One thing I hope you catch when you watch this film... is the part when the RUF (Revolutionary United Front) Col. Sharif (the African with the tooth necklace) tells the British Major Ashby, that some of these African rebels believe that if they eat the heart of a brave man, they will be brave themselves. The major then asked him if he had ever eaten anyone. Col. Sharif replies, "Yes". Major Ashby says, "Okay". He then asks him, "Is it true what they say? Does it taste like Pork?
Col. Sharif replies, "I don't know, I'm Muslim."
