I cant believe people still try and make excuses for this, Are the american populace so stupid as to not of realised by now that all these 'wars' are in fact just a cover for some agenda?
But its ok as long as your a patriot, its ok to bomb a country on the other side of the world
God it makes me sick to my stomach if the americans and its allies including my country are so bothered about the oppression of people in some other country why not invade africa? south korea? china even?

As bad as it is, war is war. I don't hear anything about the truck loads of people that were killed from the bombings of London by the Germans nor about the truck loads of people that were killed in Germany by the allied bombings. Have people gotten soft in this day and age or just plain dumb. War was and is and always will be ugly and bad sorry to say and people have to realize that.

its easy to say its just war. its been going on for far too long. measures should have been developed by now to eliminate this issue.
its more like the people with their fingers on the buttons decide a little collateral damage is acceptable everytime.
for the good of the cause, right?

War cannot be contained. My buddies that came back from Nam brought that war home with them. The brave ones killed themselves, the cowards killed other people at home. And while some learned to cope, like myself, it's a daily exercise to keep my mind clean of the scar of what I experienced.
HERAT, Afghanistan (AFP) - Afghans chanted "Death to America" and demanded US troops leave Afghanistan as mobs threw stones at government offices Thursday in a violent protest against civilian deaths, witnesses said.
Four people were wounded when hundreds of furious demonstrators protested in the western town of Farah against the reported killings of up to 70 civilians during US-led air strikes and fighting against insurgents, officials said.
