It has become clear to me that several users here have double standards. Some have asserted that blowing up and burning hundreds of thousands of civilians in WW2 was acceptable because it would have the effect of hampering the German and Japanese military efforts. These same people then suggest that it is not acceptable when other people do precisely the same thing to their own nation (eg. WTC attack). However, after labelling these two nigh-identical crimes differently (one as a crime, one not), these same users then go on to say that it is indeed acceptable to attack military targets when civilians are in the way, and such attacks are not terrorism. Why? Because the civilians in the way, though they are in their own towns, their own homes, should know that the target placed in their midst by the attacking force is a viable military target. How do people reconcile this pure hypocrisy, this monumental stupidity?
