    The report said nothing about the actions that the IDF made to avoid civilian casualties such as SMS messages and leaflet drops saying we are about to bomb that building so leave It didn't mention the reasons for the war .. Hamas firing thousands of rockets at Israeli towns for 3 years ( targeting Israeli civlians ) actions no country can accept. The targets of the bombs were tunnels & arms dumps Goldstine counts bodies & doesn't diffierentiate between combatant & non combatant and it was generally agreed by most the majority of the dead were fighters. In urban warfare civilian casualties are unavoidable you can try keep them to a minimum which is what Israel did The IDF did at times use the wrong tactics I am sure but war isn't an exact science sometimes with hindsight you can say that decission was wrong but it seemed right at the time When was the last time the UN investigated powerful countries like Russia ( Chechneya, Armania, Afghanistan ) or China when they commit war crimes
