Proof, my arse!  As if anything ressembling proof or certainty existed
in this area!

Shit happens.  It's not like the parents could reasonably be expected
to have a dozen children in a row.  If you figure that you have to
destroy some lives to create/save some others, like say kill a bunch
of collateral Afghans to save some God-fearin' Americans, presumably
that does not imply that you think that killing those Afghans is about
the same as trodding on some ants.
