They joined the army in order to survive, and it isn’t fair to charge them for something they had no control over. If they were founders of the organizations that started the war, then yes, it is fair to charge them with war crimes. If they were someone who was trying to escape but ended up being pulled into the war and forced to kill others so they could survive; those people should be granted with at least the amnesty of not being charged for war crimes.
2015 7th Grade Summer Reading NON-FICTION ASSIGNMENT My first reaction to the topic of A Long Way Gone was shock. This book is about an African boy, named Ishmael Beah, having his family and friends slaughtered, home after home destroyed, and childhood taken by the civil war in Sierra Leone. I never could imagine having everything being taken away from me and running for my life for a year like Ishmael. He was my age when he, his brother, and four other boys were chased away from their home and everything they had. I would want to come back to collect some books, food, weapons, or at least something semimetal; if the boys were to go back they would be killed by the rebels that overtook their village and many others.
