What is the suitable punishment for soldlers being obvious cowards and war criminals? Probation, of course: A "hard war"? Against innocent civilians and a handful of "armed" men? It sounds like the sort of absurd argument which is so popular around here with the defenders of Israel no matter what they do. The Hamas are "terrorists" so the Israeli soldiers essentially have a free pass to do whatever they wish, because Israeli life is obviously much more precious than Palestinian life.
