    Yair/Yeheshkel/Alias. 'you are not a serious interlocutor r cummings.were we to enter a lebanese village we would be risking the lives of our soldiers.' So you admit that the IDF sits back and shells the villages, combatants, non-combatants et al? Rather like Cast Lead? That you see is the war crime: troops, even vaunted Israeli ones, are NOT allowed under international law to randomly target civilians because the world is trying to move on from such grim practices. Which part of NOT killing civilians don't you get? Other armies just do the business, they go from house to house and clear them one by one. Civilians are unharmed if they stand still and keep their hands in the air. That's how it was in N Ireland, in Basra and now in Helmand. Brave soldiers doing the right thing, rather than smacking homes with firepower from a safe distance. The USAF admittedly seems to have its problems, the direct result of imposing aerial bombing in a guerilla war, cf IAF.
