Is it the rock bottom?

A new level of atrocity was reached recently by the terrorists in Iraq.

Insurgents detonated a bomb in a car carrying two children after using the children as decoys to get through a military checkpoint in Baghdad, an American general said Tuesday.

American soldiers had stopped the car at the checkpoint but allowed it to pass after they seeing the two children in the back seat.

"Children in the back seat lower suspicion," he said, according to a transcript. "We let it move through. They parked the vehicle. The adults run out and detonate it with the children in back."
There is no need to comment on this. Only one question haunts me now: is it the lowest in human behavior we are seeing, or, maybe, the future is preparing more?
