Generally speaking, our soldiers do not have the luxury of identifying every threat they come across in the battle zones. Therefore if someones children or anyone for that matter are posing a threat you take them out. My grandfathers best friend was killed in nam by a child that handed him a fruit basket filled with grenades. not only did it kill him but it killed the child too. Therefore I do not blame the child but his parents knew damn well what was going to happen to him. AGAIN, do not blame our soldiers!

Your anecdotes mean nothing compared to their internet charts!

"Internet charts" don't really go against what HA just said, but since you mentioned it it's worth noting that scholarly articles or research and data citing those same scholarly references are (and should be) far more weighty than anecdotes

No, they shouldn't. I believe what I see with my own eyes. Not some crap that "scholars" put together. Most scholars have never had a job in the real world.

most scholars paid their way through college with jobs in the real world and most scholars teach in community colleges or universities, both of which are jobs in the real world. what an incredibly ridiculous argument to make.

What you see with your own eyes is figuratively nothing more than your opinion of events. In a literal sense, what you see with your own eyes is nothing more than your brains interpretation of reality, and here's a nifty hint - your eyes lie to you all the time.

No they did not. Come on, Philly. You're much to smart to make a statement like that.

You really don't see the inherent flaw and imbedded hubris in processing information on the grounds that "if I ain't seen it myself it's a buncha mularky?"
