You said that we owe it to them for protecting our country. You said they are doing the same thing for those innocent civilians despite their casualties. Do you know what you are talking about?
What I think is that we are lucky to be able to wake up even in the ungodly hour of the night without hearing the sounds of crying women and children, the sounds of gunshots, or even the sounds of various explosives.
Those who did not do anything deserve the same kind of freedom we have.
