A former Liberian president is on trial for war crimes

A former president of Liberia is being tried for war crimes. I heard about the horror of civil wars raging (or had raged) in many countries around the world, especially in Africa. But I found this pastor's testimony particularly terrible.
Child soldiers - some of whom were so small they could not even lift their guns - rounded on one boy and chopped off his hand, then his arm, then both his feet, Pastor Tamba Teh said, speaking in an African Creole.

I dare not to tell Him what to do, nor do I even demand an answer, but I just really couldn't help but to think, "God, why? What were You doing, God?"
