I’m sure you know this as a married person yourself, but my wife tells me that sorry doesn’t cut it if you keep doing it.
From Wired’s Danger Room blog:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just apologized for the civilian deaths. “We deeply regret it. We don’t know all of the circumstances or causes. And there will be a joint investigation, by your government and ours,” she said. “But any loss of life, any loss of innocent life, is particularly painful. And I want to convey to the people of both Afghanistan and Pakistan that.. we will work very hard, with your governments and with your leaders, to avoid the loss of innocent civilian life. And we deeply, deeply regret that loss.”
Translation: we’re sorry that you feel badly about the loss, but we in no way apologize for undertaking the activity which guarantees this loss.
