The death of innocent bystanders is never, ever a good thing. So why do they compound this by baying for blood & going of on witch hunts? In the end they’ll hurt more people that the actual bombs.
Do at least try to stay classy.

It’s no wonder that so many countries hate them. The image they export is brash, egocentric & ignorant.
