Many thanks for your comments. You are absolutely right, children's rehabilitation and reintegration is only part of the story and the larger adult population of combatants has to be demobilized and started on the process of integration. The Central American lesson is very much one worth keeping in mind since we already see the war economies generating much by way of drug, weapons and people smuggling. Inconclusive ceasefires and agreements without any real reconciliation which keep various warlords and gangs, etc. in power are a ready made recipe for what you warn against. These are key issues to be underlined at every opportunity as we start our planning for recovery and reconstruction.
