Talkback comment following item on tragic death of parachutist:
1. IDF Parachute accident

My condolences to the family and to the IDF. As for the government -- given that more parachutists are killed in training accidents yearly than soldiers were killed in Lebanon during the "occupation," it is obvious that Israel must withdraw from parachute training, thus saving the lives of countless soldiers. Since Israel no longer uses its army to defend itself, why does it continue to train young men for combat? Couldn't you just drop Beilin, Hirschfeld, Pundak and Peres behind enemy lines and let them talk the Arabs to death?
