"Well a civilized population would throw out its government if they saw their government butchering tens of thousands of innocent civilians"
Ah yes but the problem is fear. These civilians are harbouring terrorist who hate our western way of life and want to kill us so they need to be sacrificed to protect our right to buy Mcdonalds and drive Hummers.
We don't know any of these people getting killed so really it's alright cause it isn't us.
To Quote Sam and Max
Sam (holding a bomb): Max, where should I put this so it doesn't hurt anyone we know or care about?
Max: Out the window, Sam. There's nothing but strangers out there.
Sam: (looks at the bomb in his hand and throws it out the window behind him)
(Bomb explodes outside the windows)
Sam: I sure hope there was no one on that bus.
Max: No one we know, at least...
