    They just rarely apologize, if they even acknowledge the death at all. The cycle: IDF announces it kills terrorists. Terrorists are revealed to be civilians, often children. IDF does not apologize, but says, "We are looking into it." Cycle repeats. And if Israel doesn't want to be in a war, then it needs to prepare for peace, not continue providing fresh corpses as a motive for continued (ineffective) rocket attacks. Oh, btw, the Taliban regularly kills US soldiers. When's the last time an IDF soldier was killed by Hamas? The US pulled out of Vietnam after decades of occupying Vietnam, and did not continue to drop bombs or launch missiles at it after the pull-out. Gaza has TERRIBLE terrorists. They must be the laughingstock of terror organizations the world over for their fumbling homemade rockets. This is why I'm asking the question. Hamas sucks as a combatant. If Israel, which doesn't care about world opinion in the least, truly wanted to get rid of Hamas and the militants and terrorists, WHAT IS STOPPING THEM? Nothing, as far as I can see.
