This is how I think, how my brain operates. When I read the news and see that Israeli airstrikes have killed lots of Lebanese civilians, I'm upset. Not because innocent civilians have been killed, but because each additional civilian death increases international pressure on Israel to end their military operations. And if Israel ends the attacks before they complete their objectives, we're going to be right back in this same situation 6 months, a year or two later. There's no way around it.
Right. Assuming they really are civilians.
