Whoops. Apparently, we have a difference of opinion:
Iraqis Say Civilians Killed in U.S. Raids
Military Asserts Fatalities in West Were Insurgents
A U.S. fighter jet bombed a crowd gathered around a burned Humvee on the edge of a provincial capital in western Iraq, killing 25 people, including 18 children, hospital officials and family members said Monday. The military said the Sunday raid targeted insurgents planting a bomb for new attacks...
The U.S. military said it killed a total of 70 insurgents in Sunday's airstrikes and, in a statement, said it knew of no civilian deaths.
That's because, as we all know, those weren't children -- just very, very short insurgents. Or insurgents in training. Or something.
Anyway, we don't call them "children." We prefer the term "collateral damage."
