My Kind of Response...

From a location in Syria, an artillery piece fires three shots at an Israeli Defense Force (IDF) patrol.  Luckily there were no injuries and damage was slight.  Then the IDF immediately responded:

There was a time when the U.S. military had a similarly aggressive posture.  These days, multiple layers of politics, PowerPoint presentations, and battlefield lawyers would prevent any such timely response.  Perhaps a few days later, we'd lob a Tomahawk at a “training ground” or some other target that would make politically acceptable press.

The IDF stance seems to be more like “You shoot at me, asshole, and I'll take you out!”

I rather like that.
