i went to one of those snake eater schools that militaries like to offer a long time ago...the army was big on preparedness post bellum. cuts the boredom. boosts the dwindling morale. i know damn well that if the SEAL team sent to get osama bin laden had found him surrounded by human shields and children, some of those children probably would have been killed... but so would bin laden. there seems to be a helluva lot of incidents where palestinian children and civilians are killed, but not one single militant casualty, or no israeli soldier is killed or wounded by return fire from the militant. figure it out.
