    When a nation is in the business of "expanding" onto territory that is not their own, and when the restrict and oppress the local population in those areas, they are what's known as "the bad guys". People expect someone to fight the bad guys and they love it when underdogs do this. So much more herioc to charge an alert tank crew with only hand weapons than it is to drop guided bombs on civilians from a mile up in the air. Americans always thought that their nation was always the good guys until they were confronted with My Lai and other horrific massacres perpetrated by American troops. Israeli's seem immune to this sort of awakening, so the IDF only gets worse and worse. Who will confront them except for Hamas?
