Why is it that during war, it is common for the enemy to drop a bomb on buildings filled with innocent civilians. Why does this happen? The civilians have done nothing wrong, and in most cases, don't even support the war that is being fought, the government and congress do. Why not kill them instead of people who don't have or want any trouble with your country?
I understand that this is a technique used to push the opposing country into surrender, since they don't want hundreds of thousands of their citizens killed, but this is still stupid. Some countries continue fighting wars regardless of how many soldiers and citizens they have lost and will continue to lose in the process. If you want to kill someone, kill the officials who are causing you problems, but don't kill the people who are doing absolutely nothing to you.
