The Great Peanut Impugns U.S. and U.K. Over WWII

Jimmy Carter has this to say: "There is never an excuse for deliberate attacks on civilians in conflict. These are war crimes."

Of course, the Great Peanut isn't talking about WWII, but Israel's defense of itself against Hamas (you know, the elected government of Gaza). But the U.S., the U.K., the Soviet Union, and other combatants in WWII deliberately targeted civilians, bombing factories and important infrastructure, sinking civilian ships carrying war materials, and, eventually, firebombing German and Japanese cities. (The British, in fact, carried out night time bombing campaigns because they preferred German civilians dying to losing their pilots and aircraft). Is the Great Peanut suggesting that Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Churchill were war criminals? If you take him at his word, he is.
