    Of What use is this "force"??> I believe tht their purpose is to keep both belligerant parties apart, and monitor and report on the initiations of belligernce with the true facts of the matter disregarding any propaganda. Personally, having met many sho were having R&R in Israel, I find that they are extremely highly paid, and pretty useless for anything-except their R&R. Or so several have told me in extensive conversations. They regard a tour as a highly paid vacation. Soldiers compete to try to be included on these jaunts because of the almost complete lack of soldierly duties, and the high pay, and the "entertainment" especially catering to them on their R&R. An expensive fraud. On another point, where the rebels and army clashed bitterly at Kunietra, Why did this even have to occur.? It happened because the rebels "captured" Kuneitra, the crossing to Israel which is tiotally unused and notmeven defended, except by a few customs officials who have nothing to do. If they'd left it alone, the Army would nt have attacked to put back thr ststus quo.
