We should take that verse in context -- which makes it worse!
As Steve Wells explains in Dwindling in Unbelief, God will send the happy children-smashers to do his dirty work, to punish the Babylonians for enslaving the Israelites.
Here's some context, from the King James Version:
137 By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.
2 We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
3 For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.
