f.uck off. They're not the same thing. What happens during a war is absolutely horrific, sure. but the coalition are GENERALLY not going out of their way to murder children. That Lanza kid had a clear intent when he took his mother`s guns and drove to that school, he wasn`t mistaking the identity of those 5/6 year olds,he wasn`t given bad intelligence, he wasn`t suffering from stress or trauma from being in combat too long, those kids weren`t `collateral damage` they WERE the intended targets. The soldier who murdered 16 afghanis back in march is one exception and could arguably be put in to that category, but the amount of media coverage was minimal in that case.
