    Well, last time it happened it was (or we were told) an Iraqi missile that missed its target and came down in the wrong place. Could be the same thing again.

    Wasn't ours, the pentagon clearly stated that, it was possible, but highly unlikely since we had no bombs released in the area.

    ::edit::

    i really think you people should back the hell off, they are doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualities, inclusing putting our soldiers at extreme risk, have you not heard the brits in basra complaining about the restrictions!

    and i guess you havn't heard about the fid ayin masacaring civilians either?

    It's awful when any civilians die in war. But you just have to keep in the front of your mind that we are doing this for the greater good.

    So you're saying this is acceptable?

    EDIT:
    I seriously cannot even believe that I am getting crap for feeling remorse for dead civilians...I dont' know what your views are about being open minded and 'looking at the bigger picture' and crap...that's not open minded...it's just ... omfg forget it

    He's giving you crap because in his mind, you're implying the US did it. I know what you're talking about.

    Ohhhh, no no no, I didn't ever imply the united states actually killed the people, that's a moot point because they're just as did no matter who did it. I made a pass at Bush for starting the war. I don't like war, can you tell?

    How is tgat not an implication that it is the fault of the US? Not neccesarily an implication that the US themselves did the bombing, yet that the bombing would have never taken place if it weren't for the US. How about that dictators shouldn't committ atrocities that may cause a"preemptive" president to bring their nation to war?

    i have a $$$$ty keyboard, + I suffer from some kind of "Mental" wierdness/illness/disease where is try to spell things backwards, im sorry, but i can't help it., my spelling on the othr hand is well above the national average, only held back by stupidity.

    well furter research says its dyslexia, though i suffer from very few of its symptoms.

    >So you're saying this is acceptable?

    by no means, govt. is right.

    your not, chill.

    >I made a pass at Bush for starting the war.

    please call him a monkey or something, im greatly apreciative that he started the war, hes potentially saving thousands of Americans and Iraqi's.

    >I don't like war, can you tell?

    its kinda obvious.

    >war should be an absolute last resort. This atrocity would have never happened if we werent' in the war.

    they had already been happening, and you cannot blame us for the evils of Saddam, because we are at war, he kills his own people for propaganda, and to maintain control, not because of us, we are doing everything in our power to keep civilians alive.

    I just don't want anyone to die for any reason...especially people that aren't even fighting. I really hope this war accomplishes something, and I'm not going to argue after this because I can't make good political arguments...I just don't want anyone to die...
