Where Other Commandos Fear to Tread

IF the MSM make an effort at honest reporting about the "humanitarian" Gaza relief flotilla, the outcome is both, thrilling and telling.

The UK's Channel 4 News asked Peter Cook, a retired Royal Marine [one of those as-tough-as-shit commandos, like, say, the Navy SEALS] Officer, naval analyst and counter-terror expert, to analyse IDF footage. Peter Cook had indentified the weapons used by the IDF as paint guns when he was asked:

Question: "... as a Royal Marine, is this the sort of equipment you'd go onto a ship like this with?"

His answer: (With a wry "yes but..." smile) "I wouldn't want to."
