When civilians are targeted and killed deliberately, they have been murdered, whether the killing was done by a soldier or pilot contrary to orders, or in obedience to orders. If done in obedience to orders, the guilty include those who initiated the orders, no matter how far up the chain of command.

Nice assertion, prove it! That they were 'civilian'.

You originally scoffed at the notion that murder could be committed during war. I was responding to that.

Who was a civilian in Hiroshima and Nagasaki? That’s a distinct question.
