Blue On Blue
Here's some disturbing news. The Israel Defence Force is very casualty-averse, since Israel's population is too small to fight a meat-grinder style war. Sadly, on Wednesday, the IDF lost more than a dozen soldiers, including some superb--and not easily replaceable--special forces operators. But the wrenching part is that several of these fatalities were the result of friendly fire. It happens in every war, but Israel can't afford it. Here's hoping they can wrap this up pronto, before the international Voices Of Compassion© reign them in and reinstate the terrorists in their former redoubts.
