While discussing the sentencing of the marines involved in the Haditha massacre (the killing of 24 Iraqi men, women and children in 2005), Justin Webb hypothesises that it would be understandable if, during a battle, US marines "simply went into a house and killed innocent people".

Webb may regard this scenario as understandable, others may wonder whether it is ever understandable to kill 'innocent people'.
