Ok, I agree with Paul that this is really off topic, but it doesn't seem any
less of topic than the copious and worthless discussions about hard-drive
lifespans and various ways of calculating them. That being the case, I'll
feel free to chime in on this topic.... and I'll apologize for doing so when
all other OT posters apologize for their equally OT remarks.

To say the US doesn't target civilians is ludicrous. In the past week 2
markets in Baghdad have been hit by precision missiles, but it seems that
such strikes are forgiveable in a way that directly shooting at civilians is
not. If we take a historical look at things, the US has adopted a very
callous atitude to the civilian populations of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam
with their carpet bombing practices there, killing hundreds of thousands of
innocent civilians. Let's not forget that the US used to support Saddam and
his murderous ways, either, such as when Rumsfeld went to Iraq to support
Saddam and provid him with military aid at the same time that Saddam was
using his "weapons of mass destruction" against the Kurds in the 80's.
