The bombing of the air raid shelter in the residential Ameriyya quarter of western Baghdad took place at approximately 4:30 am on February 13, killing between 200 and 300 civilians, according to various Iraqi reports -- the highest reported death toll from a single allied attack during the entire air war.

Scores of Civilians Killed in Flawed Attack on Bridge in Western Iraq
Middle East Watch interviewed three eyewitnesses to the bombing of a bridge in Falluja, a city on the Euphrates River west of Baghdad, that left scores of civilians dead. According to a Sudanese worker, 26, who had lived in Falluja for 14 months and worked at a poultry company, there are no air raid shelters in the city. He told MEW that in Falluja a new concrete bridge for vehicles was attacked a week or more before the February 14 bombing raid in which local residents said some 200 civilians were killed.23 The concrete bridge was about one km from the market. This bridge was bombed at night and there were no civilian casualties, he said.24

During a daytime attack on one of the bridges in Samawa, a city on the Euphrates River in southern Iraq, bombs fell near a crowded market, in an open area at the edge of the river, killing over 100 civilians and injuring others.
I agree that most Iraqis will be happy once Saddam is gone and will welcome American troops. It is after that I worry about.
Just out of curiosity, how much collateral damage is acceptable to attain that goal?
The methods and accuracy have improved, but remember the fight will be in a populated city.
