#2 Okay... so terrorists now know exactly where to hide in order to stay alive, and continue killing Israelis. Thanks ever so much, guys, you've been such a help. *rolls eyes*

#3 reserve and retired refusing = don't want the tough jobs that might have civilian casualties? Conscience is great except when your enemy has none - witness Arafat placing children around his Ramallah hovel as human shields

#4 Frank--Exactly. Didn't stop the Serbs. Didn't stop Saddam. Won't ever stop Arafat.

The old adage needs to be revised:
"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but the human shields the closest."

#5 So it's a matter of conscience. So the next time the Paleos boom some kids, these 27 ambulating blow-jobs get to tell the parents.

#6 Fine. Turn in your wings. And forget about that paycheck, Mr. Ex-Reservist...

We'll let the A team fly 'em...

#8 Yes, Igs, it's a real bitch of a choice, isn't it? Let Paleo terrorists continue to send homicide bombers into your marketplaces and on your buses to blow up innocent women and children with impunity, or go after the bastards running the operation and risk hitting other innocent women and children in the process.

#9 Won't go in as pilots? I'll bet 27 IDF infantry men would be willing to let them take their place in the front line.

After all, the issue is about collateral damage not being afraid to face the enemy, right?
