After a longish period of silence last year, Debka is at full steam again, it is time to add a new episode to the "Oh Debka, Debka..." series. So here it goes.
Under a headline Israel merges IDF elite units to form the new Commando Brigade tailored to combat ISIS Debka tells about the decision of our CoS to create "a unique, multi-purpose commando ground force, especially tailored to fight ISIS and provide the “boots on the ground” which the US-led coalition has kept back from the Islamists’ constantly expanding warfront".
I wouldn't know whether this tidbit is true or not and don't especially care. But the word "tailored" in the above drew my attention. Since I am not an expert on matters military in general and on the tailoring needed to kill the ISIS (Daesh) folks in particular, I searched the article for an answer to that tailoring. And I think I have found it in the picture that illustrates the piece:
|Israel Special Operations Forces|
The other piece that deserves a special mention was so good that I've decided to take a snapshot for posterity:
The sentence that charmed me so much is "The Apaches strike any moving object.".
Some people say that guns don't kill people. What about Apache copters running amok over the Sinai peninsula dunes? Do they kill people?
I shall leave you at this point to ponder this loaded question, to think about Debka, walruses, cabbage, kings...
