Withdrawing "not an easy job"

Via Middle East Politiks, the Gaza withdrawal, translated into IDF-speak:

"Normally we would storm a house killing everyone inside, whereas here we have to storm the house and keep everyone alive," said one commander. "It’s not an easy job."
If I didn't have friends who have had family members killed by Israeli soldiers and shrapnel in their legs from IDF munitions, I might find this darkly amusing. Might.

And if you're still confused what's driving Sharon amidst all of the protest from the settlers and the right, Middle East Politiks has you covered on that end, too.
