    Why me. Look Kal, I realize your excercise here is to legitimize the targeting of civilians.

    This idea of a limited war is moronic.

    Actually no, its not. Some in this thread have given perfectly good answers for both decisions. Not sure why you can't/won't even attempt to.

    That's not possible, targeting civilians has no legitimacy. Despite the US record to the contrary, the US acknowledges that, and is party to agreements that forbid it.

    We're not talking about the US. Or any other country. This is about civilized war vs WAR. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Bold: I'll take that as you voting for civilized war.

    No, I voted, in my post anyway, for an option that wasn't available in your hypothetical, yet is always an option.

    No, its not always an option. If it was then there would be no wars in the world. Or at the very least, far less.

    War is not a sport. Throughout history war has also involved civilians, in various ways. That doesn't mean that there can't be certain rules governing the conduct of warring parties (and there are) but these rules are limited and have only a limited impact.

    Diplomacy is to always an option, but sometimes when you want your gawd damn war bad enough (Iraq) diplomacy is dismissed. Funny that you might think that all wars happen because there was no political/diplomatic solution.
