These people that we are killing, especially the the children, are not terrorists.
Not yet they aren't ....... Think about it if the tables were turned. If someone came to MY country and through either incompetence or excess agression attacked My town and killed MY kids ... guess who I am going to be hunting until someone manages to take me down? But in taking me down these people will have made hundreds more just like me. Indiscriminate acts of violence against the innocent breed terrorists like flies in sh1t. The US military command originally denied any knowledge of children in the vicinity then later recanted and admitted they not only knew they deemed the risk "acceptable" ... just how "acceptable would it have been in "suspected insurgents" were holed up near or in an American public school?
That tactics of the insurgents do not justify willingly wasting kids to get a target. So far canadian sniper/scout teams have made confirmed kills in Afghanistan at 2430 meters ... 2 1/2 kilometers and a single target can be taken out with minimal collateral damage so with ground pounders to keep the heat off the shooters to allow for closer ranges the entire village could have be essentially quarantined and the targets taken out without wiping out kids or entire towns.
