My husband had been a jet pilot .The only thing he did was to do his job - defending Iraq against an aggression. So, he went to his MIG Jet, and he tried to protect the homeland. He never killed children nor did he bomb neighborhoods but... this kind of warfare is expensive and risky. So, let us send our mercenaries to the country we want to destroy.
You presumably do know how al-Qaeda was founded? He was on payroll of CIA. Which is quite funny as he had been very rich but, OK, take and go. The CIA supported the Mujaheddin war in Afghanistan against the Soviets and Bin Laden was told to create a so-called "green battalion". Green as for the color of the prophet Muhammad. A brigade of Muslims from all over the world to fight the Soviets.
