Brave Young Warrior

This is Yousiff, a 5 year old Iraqi boy who was severely burned during a terrorist attack in Iraq. CNN has followed his recovery for the past year as U.S. donors raised enough money for him to come here(to Los Angeles) for re-constructive surgery. What a brave little dude. I can't imagine the pain he must have gone through. Doctors had to pull and stretch skin up from his neck and over his face to replace the skin that was burned. What an ugly war we started.

I've seen this kid a lot on CNN. He truly is a strong guy. What was the story with him making the gun gestures?
