Cowardly?

The President said yeaterday that the bombing in Boston was a "heinous and cowardly attack." Sigh. Every event that injures or kills Americans is a "cowardly attack." Why do we insist on calling everyone else cowards? What makes it cowardly to kill our people?

What is it when we kill people in the Middle East, and elsewhere, by remote control using drones and Hellfire missiles? Not cowardly, of course, right?

"not cowardly" because we're attacking those who weould harm us, and they supposedly have weapons and can /are shooting back.

Perhaps "cowardly" is only only attacks on unarmed civilians.

Or it could be political and media savvy.
