A disaster and mistake, but really not that big of a deal.
Vietnam makes this war look like child's play
In WWII, there was so much destruction and so many innocent civilians killed, it would make the residents of Sodom and Gomorrah shit their pants.
Don't knock the US military for killing civilians. You try busting into a house where there are 10 people, with a hundred different things going on and your heart is racing so fast you can hear it in your ears. At that point, wether the war is right or wrong becomes irrelevant. If it was your ass on the line, would you not shoot first and ask questions later?
Stupid fuck: Duuuh, the soldiers are murdering pregnant women!
Normal Person: the war with Iraq is wrong, but what about the starving kids in Africa? That's been going on before this whole Iraq thing even got started!
Stupid fuck: Well, there aren't any cameras over there so I don't care!
