Yeah, intention is what you have when you drop the bombs and consequences are what you try to deny responsibility for that after the fact.
Yes, you are right in that respect for most things. However, in pretty much every war the number of civilian casualties is equal or greater than soldier casualties. I doubt that those who plan and execute war are unaware of this. Intentionally targeting civilians and targeting military targets knowing that civilian casualties will result as well is pretty much the same in my book. I'm not saying that it's wrong to target military targets (nor am I saying it's right either). I'm only saying that the end result is the same. We can argue the morality of such action in the philosphy forums.Yonoz said:There is a difference between intention and consequences.
I suppose if this thread were named: "To: The American Terrorists" it would be locked too.Evo said:No, the reason that particular thread was locked is stated in the thread, if you had bothered to read it, it was basically a repetition of another thread on the same topic.
