How many civilians have the coalition forces "slaughtered" in Iraq and Afghanistan? Hundreds of thousands. Recently, 125 Afghan civilians were killed because they were standing around a Taliban fuel truck. Was that intentional? Was it necessary? Or was it one of the uncountable number of "bad things" that happen when armies engage? I'm sure your outrage is a thousand times larger at the US, right? War is not a video game. It's not laboratory science. It's dangerous, it's unpredictable, and people get killed, intentionally and unintenionally. Over 50,000 US troops in Vietnam were killed by friendly fire. Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire, and that's the last thing the US Army would ever have wanted to happen. And if you fire rockets at civilian populations, don't be surprised if there are repercussion.
