Well, I am glad that you have family memebers who served in the US armed forces, so did we, all 5 brothers served in the US military. Of course the US Army is used for good purposes including help in flooding. IDF is good at destructions of Palestinian properties, even street lights, trees, cars every thing in its way. And of course as a Jewish army it maximim the damage it inlfict on the Palestinians. Shoot to kill, no questions asked, no court martial for killing civilians. And of course treat settlers with kids gloves because they are stealing other people's land. I am gald you have a monoploy on knowledge and monopoly on moral value. Yes the IDF is not the US Army.
