Major General Rom is very nervous about the next war with Syria, knowing fully well that the Achilles heel of Israel is the home front. It was OK for Israel to flatten thousands of civilian homes in Lebanon using the most sophisticated guided weapons. Nobody then argued what was military and what was civilian. The same was done in Gaza and the West Bank with the pretext of hitting terrorist targets hiding amongst civilians. So really, to put Rom's mind at ease, I suggest the following: 1. Provide Syria with precision guided weapons 2. Provide Syria with a list of agreed upon military targets so they avoid civilians. 3. Define oil refineries and power stations as civilian sites that do not support the war machine. 4. Define chemicametal factories and workshops (Gaza excepted) as civilian sites. 5. Disband all Israeli army reserve units to avoid confusion between military and civilian personnel. 6. Flip a coin to start the match.
