Top U.S. general slams idea of carpet bombing ISIS

Carpet Bombing

"Indiscriminate bombing where we don't care if we are killing innocents or combatants is just inconsistent with our values," he said in response to a question from CNN on the possibility of using carpet bombing.

"We are the United States of America, and you know we have a set of guiding principles and those affect the way we, as professional soldiers, airmen, sailors marines conduct ourselves on the battlefield," MacFarland said at a news conference from his Baghdad headquarters held before the Iowa caucuses. "We are bound by the laws of armed conflict. And you know at the end of the day, it doesn't only matter if you win, it matters how you win."

As former miltary. Yes we go somewhere else to fight; not because we want to, just ordered to do so. 99.99999999% of the orders comes from above the military by warmongering politicians. Those are the ones that you need to watch out. :A
