This chapter recounts Beah’s first direct encounter with the rebels. The RUF members are portrayed as sadistic, violent young men entertained by the pain of others. The RUF want boys they can easily control and manipulate. They see in Junior a boy that can still be moulded and manipulated easily.I don't think they see this in Beah.

Hey, the reason your questions are not going through is because they are too long. You need to shorten your question or ask each one separately.
