Genocide is the intentional killing of people for their identity.
But killing people accidentally while invading their country... apparently that's just war.
The United States has entered a problematic realm of diplomacy with Turkey, declaring that the murder of 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 was an act of genocide. Turkey is naturally offended, diplomatically speaking, at a time when Turkey wants to enter northern Iraq in pursuit of Kurds, against the wishes of the United States government.
But speaking of Iraq American forces and their allies have killed civilians there on a massive scale. 600 thousand? The numbers are hard to find. The Americans are making no effort at keeping a count.
Americans are not stating that they are killing people for being Iraqi.
There was no good reason for the Americans to invade the country.
What do you call that?
