One thing is for sure, when it comes to war, winning means never having to say you’re sorry. Despite the fact that over one million dollars has been allocated for assisting innocent Afghans harmed by US bombing, none of the money has been handed out or spent to help them. Certainly throughout the history (all the way up to the first Gulf War), the losing side has been made to pay restitution as part of the terms of surrender, but I guess when you’re the most powerful country in the world, that’s not necessary. The old “war is hell” excuse seems pretty thin when you’re talking about bombing innocent people who had no choice in the matter and no soldiers (or even unlawful combatants) amongst them.
