Want to run a brutal occupation?
Consult the experts!

Facing a bloody insurgency by guerrillas who label it an "occupier," the U.S. military has quietly turned to an ally experienced with occupation and uprisings: Israel.

In the last six months, U.S. Army commanders, Pentagon officials and military trainers have sought advice from Israeli intelligence and security officials on everything from how to set up roadblocks to the best way to bomb suspected guerrilla hide-outs in an urban area.

It sure has worked out well in Israel, hasn't it? And consulting with the Israelis will sure help put to rest those rumors of the whole invasion being a Zionist plot, won't it?
