True, but that doesn't change the fact that the armies currently occupying Iraq should not kill innocent civilians.

Does anyone really believe that if soldiers were encouraged to shoot civilians with no consequences at all, they would no longer experience stress? Of course not - there are many more reasons for soldiers involved in the occupation to experience stress and their feelings of stress are not sufficient reason to relax regulations designed to prevent the killing of civilians.
Part of the task of soldiers in Iraq is to protect the civilian population from the terrorist and to the degree that the rules of engagement prevent or hinder soldiers from taking necessary action against insurgents and terrorist, civilians will often be the ones that suffer the most.

Interesting. The 'terrorists' have used identical arguments.

Sure, what was the terrorist strategy for defending the civilian population in Baghdad in 2005?
