Is it not extraordinary how whenever the heavily-armed and US-funded Israeli army carries out a strike against a country that only possesses a poorly armed and poorly trained military, or often one that does not even even have any F16s, armored divisions or nuclear warheads, i.e. Gaza, Lebanon, Syria, Sudan, Iraq, Egypt or a small unarmed boat on the high seas – it immediately proclaims an amazing victory against ‘heavy odds’ or ‘a direct hit’ or another act of extreme bravery by the crack commandos … I never hear a similar message from the American, British or NATO armies in a real war zone.

It is indeed a childish title. As if playing games. Quite low in character. My word is that the world knows you are armed well and so the true victory is not seen as overpowering the weak, rather how to control and channelize your power to establish tranquility. By any judgment, you have only failed in establishing order and peace! It is like a police resorting to deep violence to show off their strength to the citizens.

If Syria is so poorly armed,etc. They have absolutely no business firing on a sophisticated, modern professional army. That’s just stupid. every scrawny kid with any intelligence knows what to expect if they provoke a larger and more capable adversary. Whant some? Get some. “Scoring a direct hit” is not celebratory just a known military jargon for accurate discharge of munitions on an enemy or practice target. Douglas, I guess I missed the “amazing victory” part. The article simply conveyed a direct hit while RETURNING fire. They got what they deserved. Don’t like getting hit? Well then DON’T HIT…
