Not only do the Ukrainian armed forces have combat uniforms for women, they have combat uniforms for pregnant women. Talk about knowing exactly what you're fighting for. Russian conscripts, eat your hearts out.
Let us recall Iran, and how it cleared landmines during the Iran-Iraq war:
The Iranian mullahs lost so many young people in the suicide waves that they sent against Iraq, the sending of gangs of school children and teenagers to clear minefields on the Iraqi border, there's not enough room in large parts of Iran to bury the number of people they killed. Large parts of the country is one big cemetery. They lost so many young people, that they had to pay Iranian mother's incentives: if you would agree to have three or more children, you could get quite a lot of subsidy and quite a lot of help from the regime. They tried to breed quickly a new generation, as the consequence of which it worked out alright, but not in the way they expected.
These children are now "martyrs," an even more grotesque con than the promise of an "everlasting life in Heaven." Let's see who else peddles in "martyrdom"? Ah...
and in Israel, it seems, nothing deters delusion:
About ten years ago, we were treated to the sickening spectacle of a young Palestinian mother, whose baby would have died in Gaza, telling the deluded Israeli journalist, Shlomi Eldar, who had gone out his way to raise money from Jews to save her baby son’s life, that she will raise him to be a suicide bomber in Jerusalem. “Life isn’t precious,” she radiated in triumph.
It should come as no surprise that "Palestinian" terrorists stash their arms and ammunitions amongst civilians, and launch attacks from such locations, or that those civilians feel themselves engaged in jihad by having those terrorists in their midst. They know they can all die, but they all also know they cannot lose. If the IDF is deterred from bombing the terrorists for fear of killing civilians, the terrorists are protected and they all declare victory. If the IDF bombs the terrorists, then “Women and children get caught up in the violence,” and the dead terrorists, together with the civilians who died around them, go straight to Heaven as "martyrs." Allahu-akbar!
And a messed-up world condemns Israel, while a messed-up Israel dreams of coexistence.
