Civilian Casualties Quotes

Text Versions
Unfortunately, in war, there are casualties, including among the civilian population  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The misunderstandings - or, what really bothers me are the intentional misrepresentations of the facts, which take place on a fairly regular basis. To think that we, people who are involved in counterterrorism, do not care about civilian casualties or deaths or injuries, is just totally, totally wrong.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The cost of an on-site inspection team would be minuscule compared to war, Saddam would have no choice except to comply, the results would be certain, military and civilian casualties would be avoided, there would be almost unanimous worldwide support, and the United States could regain its leadership in combating the real threat of international terrorism.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The last thing we want to do is to go into an area and inflict unnecessary civilian casualties. One is too many.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The First Battle of Fallujah was called off in part because of the intensity of non-U.S. media coverage of civilian casualties from outlets like Al Jazeera.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) I think on civilian casualties they could do more. It’s actually something I’ve discussed with the editors involved. They’re aware of it, and I’m hopeful that there will be more reporting on that.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) It’s very hard to turn your back once you’re aware of what’s going on, and you’re aware of the injustices, and you’re aware of the civilian casualties. It’s much easier if you have no idea and you’ve never seen it.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) WikiLeaks exposed corruption, war crimes, torture and cover-ups. It showed that we were lied to about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; that the U.S. military had deliberately hidden information about systematic torture and civilian casualties, which were much higher than reported.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) I’m saying this as a Republican: In the White House, the effort that goes in and wherever these decisions are made, as to limit civilian casualties, is more probably than any in the history of the world, especially when you consider the history of warfare.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) What is and isn’t justified by military necessity is, naturally, open to interpretation. One of the key concepts, though, is the law of proportionality. A military attack that results in civilian casualties - ‘collateral damage’ - is acceptable as long as the military benefits outweigh the price that is paid by humanity.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The task [in Afghanistan] is to reduce civilian casualties while still not hesitating to respond to enemies who are trying to kill our soldiers.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The one way, possibly, out of this is for [Bashar] Assad to abdicate and plead, perhaps to Russia or somewhere else. Would save another wave of civilian casualties if we could get him to abdicate.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) All I hope is that the American coalition is doing its best to prevent civilian casualties and the killing of innocent people.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) Our reports about civilian casualties here, about the resistance of the Iraqi forces, are going back to the United States. It helps those who oppose the war when you challenge the policy to develop their arguments  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) The issue of terrorism must be dealt with firmly. We must work very hard to avoid loss of life. We must work very hard to avoid civilian casualties. And those terrorists and Baathists are holding the people of Fallujah hostage. We must release the hostages  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) Mr. Chairman, the price for continuing this war is too high, not only in budgetary terms, but in American lives, iraqi civilian casualties blamed on America and in the steady increase in the terrorist ranks that this war is provoking around the globe  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) As in any war, there have been dreadful mistakes and civilian casualties. The difference is when Israelis kill innocents they apologize; when Hezbollah kills innocents they celebrate  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) I’m getting a little fed up with hearing about, oh, civilian casualties. I think we ought to nuke North Korea right now just to give the rest of the world a warning  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) By citing the UN Charter I indicate that the defensive party to the conflict should use only proportionate force, try to avoid civilian casualties, and end combat operations as soon as possible. These are provisions recognized by almost all authorities on international jurisprudence  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) Neoconservatives and the Pentagon have good reason to fear the return of the Vietnam Syndrome. The label intentionally suggests a disease, a weakening of the martial will, but the syndrome was actually a healthy American reaction to false White House promises of victory, the propping up of corrupt regimes, crony contracting and cover-ups of civilian casualties during the Vietnam War that are echoed today in the news from Baghdad  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) I don’t think we [the USA] need more troops. I think we need to be less worried about civilian casualties  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) I don’t know of any army that does more than an Israeli army does to avoid civilian casualties. But incidental and unintended casualties accompany every war  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) Qatar-based ‘Al-Jazeera,’ the most important news channel in the Arab world, was harshly criticized by high U.S. officials for having ‘emphasized civilian casualties’ during the destruction of Falluja. The problem of independent media was later resolved when the channel was kicked out of Iraq in preparation for free elections.  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) I think on civilian casualties they could do more. It’s actually something I’ve discussed with the editors involved. They’re aware of it, and I’m hopeful that there will be more reporting on that  (Civilian Casualties Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
