Are Americans still for the war?

"One of the uncomfortable realities of the war on terrorism is that we Americans have killed many more people in Afghanistan than died in the attack on the World Trade Center."

This quote shows how the war on terror is strong, it is believed that America has killed more people than Osama bin Laden. Why are we killing so many people? not only terrorists, but also many civilians are being murdered. Through so much fighting it seems that we might be pushing the issues to far. We are so used to being the positive that it is hard to believe that we could be involved in such murderous numbers. But it is for our own good we are told, by creating these numbers we are creating peace. Not everyone sees it as a good thing, we are killing civilians at an incredible rate and the only answer we have is that it is for our national security. At the end of the day America is not very well liked and by the end of the war who will stand by such a country if these numbers keep adding up

Always cite the source of your quotes and it may help to include some context or a couple of more sentences.

Aside from debating the war itself, what does this tell us about the coverage of war or wartime propaganda?
