Vietnam, you couldn't tell the difference between civilian and military.
Personally I think what you said about not having to worry about civilians
is wrong. Do you think the military goes "oh shit we just hit a school
sorry guys" They pay close attention to that sort of thing, and avoid all
unnecessary damage. War isn't what it use to be. I think alot of it has
to do with a major part of military duty being peace keeping now a days.
More sensative soldiers and whatnot. Kinder friendlier army sort of
thing. or maybe im just on crack.
