Soldier says commander slapped him for tardiness    Yoav Zitun
1. Who is a powerful leader?
The leader who can control himself. Those who can t control themselves are poor leaders.

2. And why is this NEWS???
It will be investigated, there is no fact right now... this is not newsworthy!

3. Why is this news?
I would think this could be handled internally by the army. Why does this have to be news?

4. Commander slapped me
That is the same act that got General Patton in trouble in WWII

6. "Cried"?????
...I like the fact that a soldier "cried" when he was slapped, what will he do when he is being shot at?

It's news becaues the soldier wants to shame his commander publicly for revenge! I bet you anything he also expected for the commander's name to be published! This is what we do in Israel, unfortunitly! threaten eachother with public ridicule through the press! "if you don't do this or give me that, i'll talk to a reporter and have them write a article on you!" litteraly! and like any press worldwide, work is work! Some Israeli's blatenly lie, some just report for revenge/public outcry!

9. no shame in crying!
HE was humiliated in front of people and he cried. SO? Shows he is a good sensitive person.

10. Tash 2.
The soldier was probably very incompetent... If he was on Tash 2 (Which sounds like he was) and got blasted by an officer for not being on time... The officer also seems to have lost control.though... I predict that the officer will be punished, and the soldier go free... Although, there seems to be something wrong with letting the soldier go completely free...

13. 6 TruthMonger: Cry some more. The old days of Rocks and
Shouls were when senior enlisted beat the crap out of juniors for not obeying orders or being insubordinate. Not obeying orders in a place of safety seems reasonable to young soldiers and sailors, but not being obedient to orders can mean death in a battle zone. The seasoned know the horrific consequences of not obeying: death. Ariel Sharon liked to disobey orders and the crap should have been beaten out of him for that failing. Instead, other people were killed. He himself was spared, but those with him often were not. He considered orders to be suggestions, like some young enlisteds. That got a lot of people killed if you read his book, "The Warrior".

14. In the Russian Army that so many Russians migrated to
Israel pretending to be Jews left Russia to escape, brutality is a way of life. Survival in battle is the objective of toughening up troops. What kind of Jews eat pork and complain about a seventh day national Shabbat law? What kind of Jews wear immodest clothing and get extra money on the side from whoring around? Fake Jews from Russia. Send them back. Thank you Christians for sending so many fake Jews to Israel to destroy the culture. I spit on you.
15. Sounds like Patton.
