Bad Boys Being Badder
Small boys grow up to become bigger boys and here that means graduating into the schools of militancy and taking up the gun, there is basically nothing much else to do when you have no viable future. The other evening we were out doing a live shot at one of the sand berns that have began to spring up around Gaza City and this one was deep in a Hamas stronghold.
A Hamas Unit controlled all traffic thru the bern and whilst traffic violations are ignored, they do put a menacing threat to any Israeli forces that enter the city. Whilst a sand bern can slow down any attempt at tanks to enter, the berns will have to be cleared first by bulldozers and the Israeli Miltary bulldozers are one mean bulldozer.
The Hamas boys with RPG's though pose another threat.
