100. This is, no doubt, why we blow up entire wedding entourages in Afghanistan.
Do you remember the story where they launched a hellfire and killed somewhere around a dozen people in Afghanistan simply because one of them was "unusually tall" and therefore seemed Bin Laden-like?

Also, the same effect you mention is heavily at work when they claim the Good Samaritan who comes to the reporter's aid (the one with his children in the van) is picking up weapons.

They're not just looking for excuses, they're making up excuses to use those weapons.
