The BBC reports that the US Army is bombing civilian targets in Somalia right now because there´s a suspicion that there are terrorists around. Even if there were terrorists US has to stop its policy of air bombardments of civilian towns in which terrorists may be present. Think about it. There are probably Islamic terrorists in Madrid where I live right now. Should we get bombed then? Are we all fair game for USA to catch terrorists? And even if a terrorist is identified, should he/she be killed from the air or instead brough to justice as we do over here in Spain? Why is placing bombs terrorism and throwing bombs from airplanes not terrorism?
