You know what I've got to say about that.
What you meant to say was, it is not the official policy
of the US government for its troops to intentionally kill civilians.
US soldiers have intentionally killed civilians, with and without orders,
in every conflict the nation has ever been involved in. Occasionally it
gets found out, and the government wails & gnashes its teeth.
Then those incidents are downplayed and left out of the history books
and everybody forgets about it. Until it happens again.
(and note I, personally, make no moral judgements about any of that shit.)
