    What thread are you reading?
    No, there is no lie. Go back and read, this while trying to understand.

    And yes, Kelzie agrees with you sentiments, but does a much better job of actually reading hat has been said and responding appropriately.

    You both are intelligent and can explain what you mean, from what I can tell. At least...when you want to! Obviously my sentiments are more in line with Rev's.

    No, just pointing out a difference. I would like you to see and respond positively.

Civillian deaths are to be expected from war.
    Civilian deaths should never be 'expected'. what a blase attitude to take, on something that should be avoided at all costs. If 'Rules of engagement' procedures are followed correctly, it can keep incidents to a minimum and civilian casualties should be unexpected.

    Probably more realistic than blase. And no one is saying they shouldn't be avoided, though at all costs is a little extreme. Anyone who thinks war can be conducted without civilian causalties is ignoring history.

    Not at all, only when there's possible danger. Not being able to distinguish friend from foe, even women and teenagers could they potentional bombers or shooters, in revenge for those friends or relatives who were killed earlier. It's Always better to be safe than sorry.

    Idiot...

    How do you KNOW it's a bus full of passengers? Are you a psychic or something? Do you have x-ray vision?

    Take that naive little attitude of your's to a combat zone and you'll come back in a flag-draped coffin...

    Like my LT always used to say, it's better to be judged by twelve than to be carried by six.
