A video from Syria on YouTube shows little boys, all of whom appear to be under the age of 5 or 6, holding big guns and wearing opposition flags.

The video was posted on Wednesday and appears to originate from one of the Syrian rebel groups; it links back to this Facebook page for "Syria Justice and Freedom."
