82. Evidence suggests that Americans place less value on human life than other people,

 

so it's easy to see that Americans are more than happy to swallow the B/S excuses for dropping bombs on civilians.

Currently, slaughtering poor and powerless people in third-world countries is considered an acceptable activity of the US Government, and it's hard to convince most Americans that engaging in such evil behavior disqualifies anyone from being elected US President.

While the majority of world citizens agree that military attacks targeting civilians are never justified, a decade after 9/11, there is a wide range in the level of support for this view. A clear majority in Asia and MENA (Middle East and North Africa) find military attacks against civilians unacceptable. This is not surprising considering the acute conflicts raging in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and other parts of the Middle East.

In contrast, regionally, residents of the U.S. and Canada are most likely to say that military attacks against civilians are sometimes justified. Americans are the most likely population in the world (49%) to believe military attacks targeting civilians is sometimes justified, followed by residents of Haiti and Israel (43%).
