Perhaps you should reflect on how Hussein was routinely portrayed as "targeting innocent civilians" with the scud missle launches when they would miss their intended targets. However when it's the US, it is "Non-Combatant Citizen death".
To say nothing of the thousands of Kurds he killed with chemical weapons. They were targeted. Any deaths of children by the USA were not deliberate acts.
You should note the difference.
Also perhaps you should bring up 33 MILLION deaths the Chinese inflicted on their own population during the early communist years.
Or the 3 million killed by Pol Pot of his own people.
I don't see you railing against those killings.
And millions more killed by the early communist times in Soviet Russia.
I guess those deaths don't count since the USA didn't do them.
Let's see, 50 million killed EXTREMELY deliberately by communists, what did you say? 3000 kids killed accidentally by the US in the Afgan wars?
Why don't you make a big push to try to rectify THOSE deaths, eh?
I guess for you it's a wash. 50 Million killed by commies is not as bad as 3000 killed by the USA. So if the US army kills ONE person, then it's ok for commies or other bad guys to kill 16,000, then things are equal in your eyes.
