Incredibly, Deeply, Perfectly Settled Wisdom

Why is it that the moral conventions that apply to torture are not even included in a debate regarding civilian casualties?

Possibly because there is no debate regarding civilian casualties.

Apparently the modern view of accidental wartime killing is not just settled wisdom – it is so incredibly, deeply, perfectly settled that it must not be disturbed by further consideration despite changes or advances in war technology and our own awareness, growth and understanding.

Until this issue is honestly reassessed all related discussion is difficult – if not impossible – owing to the conditions of a moral vacuum created as a result of our wilful blindness.
