It's always the same

Some head of state or state official with a real fancy title orders airstrikes to "neutralize" some "enemy camp." Inevitably it is civilian villages that get attacked instead. The head or state or state official with the real fancy title claims success even though no enemy camps or bases were ever hit, perhaps with a denial of any civilian "collateral damage" just to appease uneasy folks at home. If all goes "well" the uneasy folks at home get distracted by the usual bread and circuses, and the dead and dismembered villagers are conveniently forgotten.
