Killing the civilians in order to protect them:

TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi survived a NATO airstrike on Saturday night that killed his youngest son Saif al-Arab and three of his grandchildren, a Libyan government spokesman said.

Mussa Ibrahim said Saif al-Arab was a civilian and a student who had studied in Germany. He was 29 years old.

Libyan officials took journalists to the house, which had been hit by at least three missiles. The roof had completely caved in in some areas, leaving strings of reinforcing steel hanging down among chunks of concrete.

A table football machine stood outside in the garden of the house, which was in a wealthy residential area of Tripoli.

If I am on a bus, and the bus driver passes out, and I take the wheel and swerve out of the way of a large crowd, and in doing so, I accidentally run down a 13 year old, was I wrong?

Why should I believe running down the child was an accident? (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_RfV5VMtlSWQ/Sw8_pmEieFI/AAAAAAAAB-Y/YqYLJYTHTjI/s1600/Ralph.jpg)
