US air strike hits Iraqi family

There's a picture with the explanation of "Women's and children's bodies have been pulled from the rubble."
Several members of the same family, including women and children, have been killed in a US air strike that destroyed their home in northern Iraq.
There was confusion over the number of casualties, but local authorities in the town of Beiji, north of Tikrit, have confirmed at least six dead.

US forces said they acted after seeing three men suspected of planting a roadside bomb enter the house...
..."The individuals left the road site and were followed from the air to a nearby building. Coalition forces employed precision guided munitions on the structure."...
...So far, the bodies of a nine-year-old boy, an 11-year-old girl, three women and three men have been found in the rubble, police said...
..."If there were gunmen or criminals in that house, is it right to blow up the whole family?"...
I bolded the date so we would know it was not last year this happened, but today! The article goes on that we don't know if they even found a roadside bomb. The local police chief was questioning that if they believed there were terrorists, why didn't they surround the place and hold them?

What the hell is with our forces? Is it fear that causes them to kill so many innocent? Or is it the belief that the locals are not worthy because we're occupying their country and that means they're our forces' bitches?
