Pinpoint strikes

The U.S., the most trusted name in missiles and bombs, has launched over 100 cruise missiles at targets in Libya. Aswe know, these missiles are so accurate that they will only kill operators of anti-aircraft batteries, even though these guns, as usual, are located in civilian areas. Of course, I don't imagine that there will be any collateral damage as has been known to occur in other battles.

The reason that these missiles have to take out anti-aircraft batteries is to protect the bombers from ground fire. So, although it won't happen, civilians may be killed in order to protect pilots who are supposedly protecting civilians.

Couldn't the U.S. at least have the decency to let someone else do this dirty work for once?
