Okay, how does one justify the killing of civillians? They aim and fire at a building, they should know there are no civillians in there.

If they didn't it is not an accident. If they shoot someone it's not an accident either. If you go into a live combat zone, you are trained not to fire at civillians, and to recognise someone is an enemy before hand.

Yes in some situations it really is no ones fault, sometimes a soldier can get a little too hyperactive and let his professionalism slip, however that is not something you can justify.

"It was ok because i didnt know he was an enemy" is not good enough "I slipped and pulled the trigger" is also not good enough, as the military is supposed to be trained to target only combatents.

If anyone wants immediate advice don\'t hestitate to contact to me on AIM (AOL instant messenger) - aim: vodkasmodka
