The Soldier's Song
No one cares about soldiers.
The whole point of soldiers is to be the necessary fodder, expendable in order to achieve the desired aim.
No one cares about them when they are alive and when they are dead they care even less.
A "dignified" funeral. Crocodile tears from politicians. All that is left is the anguish from the family as they realise their child died for nothing.
Apparently Israel cares for it's soldiers. Except it doesn't really. Israel cares for it's pride, showing it's might and using any reason to treat the Palestinans like ants under a magnifying glass.
You cannot care about something which you do not value. When something is priced in blood, the real cost is far greater then that.
