    Well we are in agreement then.

    However, we have the means but not the will to take those steps.

    I was against the war in Iraq but I wasn't against taking out Saddam but politically and legally we are not allowed to do that.

    It's always different when we do it, Mad, you know that.

    How many wars can you list in which no innocent civilians were killed?
    The post you replied to was my mention of Dresden, was Dresden a military target whatsoever?
    Thanks from Madeline

    The US military is firing these weapons at CIVILIANS???

    That is a fucking war crime.

    Just as NAPALM was, used on civilians.

    Hit civilians and used on civilians are two different things. You would be hard pressed to find an example of Americans using such weapons on civilians deliberately in Vietnam or Iraq or syria.

    Either way it is not a crime it is a voluntary move to not use them on civilians.

    Oh BTW the little girl in the world famous photo was hit by her own country's military not by the USA.

    Still no list of wars in which no innocent civilians were killed?

    Why do you people seem to expect others to answer your questions while you ignore theirs?
    Illogical as well as arrogant.

    They are too indiscriminate and cause too much agony before death.
    Agent orange is not a weapon at all.

    WP and Napalm are not illegal either
