As a veteran of the US Army I feel insulted by those who compare the US Army to the IDF. While it is true that the US Army in the form of the National Guards and even some regualr units make be called to help in case of national emergencies, the US Army never is used to protect thieves and tresspassers, like the IDF. The US Army does not sponosr US citizens to take over other people property and land like the IDF. There is no comparison between the US Army and the IDF. One is a representative of a open democracy the IDF is an army of a racist state and is driven by a Zionist ideology that is nothing but racist to the core.
