In Chad they were fighting because Chad obtained independence from France. Chad had between two hundred and three hundred children fighting in that war, ages from eight to eleven. I think that is horrible and the children being so young and probably not understanding whats going on shouldn't have been fighting in that war. I learned that young children fight every where no matter what type of war is going on or whats happening or happened in the country. One of the wars in Chad went on for 14 years. I think the war is still going on in Chad.. I think they should just give up and do peace. Fighting so much and so long in a country while having child soldiers is really messed up and messes up the country.
