Collateral Damage? Yeah Right!!

I would like to know when it became okay to use the term "collateral damage" when making a reference to innocent people being killed. Seriously, when was it? The people in this country bitched when Timothy McVeigh used that phrase when he talked about the innocent people that he murdered in the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing. They said something along the lines of how dare he refer to the innocent as collateral damage. But now it's the "norm" to refer to innocent dead Iraqis as collateral damage.

While we're on the subject, I'm sick to death of these military assholes who use the excuse of not being able to distinguish between an insurgent and innocent civilians. Bullshit!! Innocent Iraqis are being murdered at the hands of the U.S. military, and the military is getting away with it by using this very excuse. Oh that's right, they would like us to believe that they can't tell the difference between an innocent child and a person throwing a grenade. They would like us to believe that they can't tell the difference between a mother carrying her baby, and a person shooting at them. They would like us to believe that these innocent people are dying because the military is just confused as to who is who. Again, BULLSHIT!! They're killing people right and left for absolutely no reason because they think they can. They think that they're entitled to do whatever they want. They need to be arrested for these atrocities, tried, convicted, and punished. And we don't need to impose these bullshit punishments like a year or two in jail. They need to spend the rest of their lives in prison, and not a U.S. prison for that matter.
