More "collateral damage" I suppose. The cretins responsible for perpetrating this continuing war figure you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. That's the beauty of being a "leader" in our modern context; no longer do they need to be constrained by morality or ethics or humanity. Might makes right. As Dick Cheney said, they have "other priorities."
