Haven't been paying attention to current events ?
Seen the path and destruction and 'collateral' damage left behind AQ, and ISIS in Iraq, and Syria?
You know where the US isn't.
You know those 'innocents'.
Guess that doesn't matter.
Only demagoguing the US military and IGNORING what THEY DO.

Military men and women of the United States swore an oath to uphold the constitution no matter what.
Every war since WW2, has not passed through congress. Therefore, every war since WW2 is unconstitutional.
That means every soldier that has volunteered or stayed in since that time are traitors to the United States.
So please, spare us all the innocent solider BS. These soldiers are as much to blame as the politicians.
The War Powers Resolution requires the President to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war.
