Child Soldiers Are Wrong

As Russia, Iran and Iraq join other countries in Vienna today to discuss the Syria crisis, all parties should agree to add one item to the agenda: ending the use of child soldiers. Of course, it is generally known that Islamic State (ISIS) engages in the practice, but they are not the only ones: Iraqi Shia militias fighting ISIS alongside Iraqi government forces are also using kids. Children are fighting every day in the battle field and dying as well. They should not be allowed to be exposed to such horrific things that happen out in battlefields. There are a lot of different groups using child soldiers. This all needs to be stopped. How can we find ways to make sure children do not end up in war and in danger? Any ideas you have please comment them.
