IDF prepping for a yard sale
 
You would think some private would say "Hey! Wait a minute. I don't think this is a good idea."

"IDF tanks found abandoned in Golan Heights"

https://www.israelnationalnews.com/N...ws.aspx/286100

"Families hiking on Thursday in the Golan Heights were amazed to discover IDF tanks in an open area, completely unguarded, News 12 reported.

The tanks were open, and inside there was equipment, weapons, MAGs, and mortars.

In a statement, the IDF responded: "This is an unusual and serious mistake. The issue will be immediately investigated by commanders, and presented to senior staff."....."

Somebody is going to get a down check on their efficiency report.

A good friend spent time bouncing around Israel and it's traditional adversaries up close and personal a number of years ago in an official capacity.

He was of the opinion that a fair chunk of the IDF's warfighting reputation might not be due to the IDF being so good, but their adversaries being so very bad.

Conscripts are gonna conscript.....whatcha gonna do?

LMAO. Funny, the America of my youth had neighborhoods where you could do that.
A big city here now & the ferals would find a way to have those things up on jacks & parted out... "Hey, is that a small block???"

Flag is spot-on. I did the Sinai tour back in the day. I always though the Israelis were super squared away. Uh.....not so much. Just that their enemies were really.....really....really jacked up.
