It doesn't have to be that way.  Prior to the 20th century, that was not the case among the nations of Christendom.  The US War Between States is a great example of a war where very few civilians were killed (except by the despicable total war tactics of Sherman and those of his ilk).  But that old school sort of warfare requires true heroism and courage, because you had to see the face of the enemy you fought (which means you're less likely to blow away a house full of women and children).  Today, it's like a video game, where remote drones, bombers, and long-range artillery do most of our fighting (can you tell I don't have much respect for the Air Force?).  I still give props to the Marines and Army infantry, though.  I sympathize with the struggles of the grunt on the ground.
