some posters here buy into the belief the black hats are right and that innocents are targeted.

I don't think anybody thinks "innocents are targeted." That's just another cheap lie from the partisan right, attempting to deflect attention away from the issue.

What do you think would be the reaction in this country if Pakistan decided to "take out" a high priority target in, say Texas, and instead killed 20 Americans?

Did you not see the wave of nationalism and revulsion when America was attacked? How can you not understand why the people in Pakistan have the same reaction when their country is attacked?

Or are they supposed to intellectualize "Oh, that doesn't matter. The Americans are the good guys, and if they kill our villagers, well, that doesn't matter, because they say there might have been some bad guys there."

The depths to which you will stoop to rationalize our mistake are astounding.
