This week's election in Iraq may have been a time of celebration for most citizens, but it turned into horror for one family whose handicapped son was turned into a suicide bomber by insurgents who strapped explosives to his chest to disrupt the voting process.

The victim was Amar Ahmed Mohammed, 19, who had Down syndrome and was said to have had the mind of a 4-year-old boy.

"He was like a baby," one of Amar's cousins told the Sydney Morning Herald. "He had nothing to do with the resistance and there was nothing in the house for him to make a bomb. He was Shiite – why bomb his own people? He was mindless, but he was mostly happy, laughing and playing with the children in the street. Now, his father is inconsolable; his mother cries all the time."

It goes on if you can stand to read more. Amazing that some people can still think of these horrible creatures as insurgents, or resistance fighters. They're scum.
