I see the point you were trying to make, and I agree wholeheartedly that the trigger pullers deserve just as much if not more of the blame for killing.
I think maybe you could have made the original post a little clearer.
I think most of the confusion was over conflicting uses of the word kill, being used literally and figuratively by different people.
Most of the responders including myself at first, thought you were absolving the president of blame.
I too am very frustrated by the glorification of US soldiers in aggressive wars, and frustrated by people's refusal to acknowledge that they are acting as killers for the state.
