Here's an example to illustrate how a civilian population under occupation get treated as guinea pigs. The Israeli army has been conducting military "exercises" in Palestinian villages to practice "capturing" them. How screwed up is this? So the peaceful population of a village is subjected to military operations that scares the hell out of them for no reason except that the army can. Not only this, but the army is forgetting that Israel has already "captured" these villages; they are already under occupation. But the Israeli occupation was always fond of pretend games, and this is one of them.
Notice that if the practice is going to stop, it is because some soldiers (the least delusional I guess) are unhappy with it. The villagers can complain from now to eternity that they don't like this scary game in which they are always captured when they are already captured but nobody will listen.
Yes, I'm talking about the twilight zone!
