“Collateral damage” is simply a part of perpetual war…nothing to worry about. Whose counting anyway…in the eyes of American military controlling drones from bunkers in Nevada, they are simply moving targets. (I say this with the utmost sarcasam)
The U S presence in the Middle East has proven fatal for so many innocent lives, been disastrous for regional infrastructure, detrimental to the environment, and laid waste to water supplies. The only reconstruction that is prioritized and completed is to equipment and structures needed to extract and transport the oil. The U S has consistently throughout history propped up dictators (beholding to the US like the Shah Pahlavi of Iran, S. Hussein of Iraq, Osama bin Laden, i.e.), armed/supported the groups most destructive and apathetic to the people that murder and torture with impunity, and created irreparable damage and chaos. Something to be proud of???
