(a) IN GENERAL.—Subject to subsections (b), (c), and (d), the authorities contained in section 516 or 541 of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 (22 U.S.C. 2321j or 2347) or section 23 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2763) may not be used to provide assistance to, and no licenses for direct commercial sales of military equipment may be issued to, the government of a country that is clearly identified, pursuant to subsection (b), for the most recent year preceding the fiscal year in which the authorities or license would have been used or issued in the absence of a violation of this title, as having governmental armed forces or government- supported armed groups, including paramilitaries, militias, or civil defense forces, that recruit and use child soldiers.

Bump Elite1grey. Reading is not so difficult that you deem it sufficient to read one paragraph summaries from the Oompa Loompa ;) Analysis.
If you read the whole tory instead of this blurb you will find out it is only 3 countries and we are teaching them to fight terrerists which they couldn't do if it wasnt waved. get the facts before you judge and we should all know better!
Why do I get the feeling this country is being sold out?
