Just War & Civilians.................

A US airstrike in Iraq killed a large number of civilians. There have been claims that loosened rules of engagement by President Trump caused this. The facts are we don't know, but the US operates with tremendous regard for avoiding civilian casualties and that is still and will always be the case.

But that has not ALWAYS been the case. And as proof, I give you WWII, which is the last war this country truly won.

We only began to care about civilian casualties when we decided we never wanted to win another war. And that concern does NOT carry over to domestic events, where BATFE and other "Law Enforcement" across this nation have shown they don't give a dam about what happens to innocent Mere Citizens. The only thing that matters is for THEM to get home safely.
