Even if it was a country, why should there be collateral damage involved? It should be possible (if the US is to make a responsible decision) to simply knock out military bases, weapons dumps etc...surely the aim of the US is not to bomb whichever country is responsible to hell and back? Stop me if I'm wrong here, but it doesn't sound very mature or responsible to take revenge by killing a large number of civilians because many American civilians were killed.
