Regret is No Excuse

When a terrorist blows up a subway station, we do not in the least excuse him if he claims to regret the deaths of the children. He knew full well how many kids he would kill. In like manner, when an American military man drops bombs on houses, no matter how much he may regret killing the 50% of the occupants who are children, he is still a terrorist (killer of civilians attempting to influence them politically) and still a murderer of innocents and still a war criminal. He is guilty of a capital crime and should be treated as anyone else who brazenly committed a capital crime even if he escapes prosecution.
