Nonsense! In urban area combat, MOST of the people found in the area where combat takes place are most likely to be civilians. I know, insurgents in
Iraq do not wear uniforms, and it is hard to identify them. But it needs to be done. Killing anyone in sight means committing war crime, and those
responsible should be put on trial, regardless who they are. And those led by the motto 'kill 'em all, let God sort them out' are not worthy being
called soldiers. They are SCUM.
And as for war, war goes waaaaay beyond the killing of enemy. War is mostly a matter of politics. But I'm not going to teach you about that. First,
you should try to find the answer to the question - What is the ultimate goal of US politics and strategy in Iraq? Certainly not to 'to kill those
who oppose you (US)'.
