Not a Good Ratio

Israeli forces killed a militant and a civilian yesterday near the West Bank, according to Yahoo News.
In baseball, a batting average of .500 is so fantastic it is unheard of. If such a player existed he could retire a trillionaire in a year.

A ratio of killing one militant for one civilian, .500, is unacceptably bad. Nonetheless most people in the killing nations in such situations, or the allies of such a nation, think little of it. Their news would probably give more attention to a baseball player with a batting average of .343 than a country with a civilian/militant ratio of 1:1.
