So you think that war must be fought "morally"? It's time you realized that ALL war is immoral, and therefore any means of winning a war rapidly and at minimum cost to your own forces is "legitimate", whatever that means. If children must be killed to win a war, then so be it. Civilians - all civlians - are legitimate targets, as the Arabs and other Muslims have taught us. And the US and Allies did it too, in World War II, by fire-bombing Dresden and a-bombing Hiroshima. Grow up, Jonathan, war is not a video game or moving tin soldiers on a chessboard. Our army has nothing to be sorry for, except for not taking more drastic measures agaisnt the Palestinian civilian population.
