Gee. Where did they ever get such a dastardly idea?

The only outrage I have heard about barrel bombs is the way they are used. Assad's troops fly over population centers and drop them indiscriminately.

It's one thing to have collateral damage. For example when a smart bomb destroys a targeted building and nearby buildings are also destroyed. In this case you are aiming at a specific target of military value. Attempts are made to minimize civilian casualties but they will often be unavoidable.

It's entirely different to fly helicopters over cities and drop bombs on civilians. On civilians of your own country. That's beyond fucked up.

I guess you never heard of Dresden????

Oh, that makes everything okey-dokey, then. Facepalm
