There are no morals in war. Just win.Under our supposed morals, yes they should. Otherwise they're being hypocritical.
Then missing the target was also a 'misdeed', because it was a mistake. Are you sure you want your criteria to be "things done wrong"? People die. Ostensibly, you have zero experience with war. You may want to consider going full pacifist, because it seems as if the whole concept of war is distasteful to you.A "misdeed" is doing something that was wrong. And again, it is not the mistake itself that I am talking about. (for the third time) It is the covering it up instead of at the very least apologizing for it that was wrong. I find it very disturbing that you think that it is perfectly OK to make a mistake that costs lives and not have to, at the very least, apologize for that mistake.
