18. And those who are blowing up Iraqi civilians?
First off, I still don't like seeing US soldiers die. Those soldiers are doing their job and they were sent into a war by our leaders - they should be brought home, not be killed.

I am saddened every time I read that insurgents have killed some American soldiers. However, I don't think those killing American soldiers are "terrorists" - they're active participants in a war killing opposing soldiers. That's what happens in a war.

But I draw the line at those insurgents who attack and kill Iraqi civilians. Targetting civilians is wrong in ANY and EVERY circumstance. It's wrong if the US military does it and it's certainly wrong if Iraqi insurgents are doing it.

And frankly, it disturbs that so many on DU have denied that insurgents are killing Iraqi civilians and saying they're "freedom fighters" when they do so.
