Each day we pick up a newspaper to discover how many people got killed in Syria. Each day, some commentator in Syria shows pictures of dead bodies, and it is absolutely certain at least three of four will be children. Latest figures indicate that since Russia began its bombing offense a few months ago, at least 1,000 civilians have been killed. The Russians insist they also killed 893 Islamic militants. Most probably the dead bad guys are those who oppose President Assad.
My questions are:
How does a pilot know exactly which guy down below is a bad guy?
Who collects this data– the pilots or some people in some office, somewhere?
Is there any possibility, even a slim one, that innocent people also die during these attacks?
P.S. The other guys killed over 4,000 bad guys.
