Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

About two people's armies

If you look for some first-hand account on the daily life of an Israeli soldier you'll find it here on Dave's page about his job at some Tulkarm-Checkpoint this summer. Or if you prefer (and I know you prefer), you can also find some idea of Women and Minorities in the IDF. I wish our female soldiers in Switzerland were that cute! ;-)

In general, looking at those pictures, the similarity to the ones I know from my own military experience in Switzerland struck me on first sight. But then of course, you must realize that the life of an israeli soldier is raw reality in what you can call a war zone. And that sometimes in Switzerland, we forget that we are actually training for a real situation. But both armies are people's armies composed of people of all parts of society. That is what gives them their real legitimacy. And that is what prevents them from becoming totalitarian.
