Supporting the troops

I'm not entirely sure it's fair to draw conclusions, or even what conclusions to draw, but the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier seems to contrast markedly with the kidnapping of 2 US soldiers.

At least as far as governmental reaction.

Israeli reaction: Invade Palestine.

BushCorp™ reaction: Blame the media for not focusing enough on the "good" news in Iraq.

Now I'm far from convinced that the Israeli reaction is the correct one.

But I'm pretty sure it's clear which government sees supporting its soldiers as rather more than mere jingoistic sloganeering.
