Religion isn't about ethics. Religion is about morality.
Reforming a murderer is ethical. Hanging him is moral.
Most of the debates on this board are actually debates between what's moral and what's ethical.
Since you, apparently, would not call that a genocide, just what would you call it? And don't bother with "War". Because, at no time in the course of human events, did any civilized nation ever declare, or wage, war by the slaughter of all of the children of the nation with whom they were at war. Now, notice that I didn't say that no one has ever done this, so don't bother giving the example - such as Attila the Hun, or Genghis Khan - who, in fact, did wage war in just that manner. I said no civilized nation has ever done that.
So, the simple, trite answer, "War" is off the table. So what would you call ordering the complete annihilation of a nation, including its children, and even livestock, if not a genocide?
See, now you want to pretend that God didn't really say what the bible clearly states that God said. So, what? The Bible lied?
