Precise Bombs, Random Targets

Rumsfeld liked to brag about the pinpoint precision of American bombs. What he did not mention was most oft the time the targets were picked pretty well randomly and if you hit a house anywhere in the third world, it will be half full of children. In WWI (World War I) 10% of the casualties were civilians. In the Iraq war it is 90%, despite these so-called precision weapons.
