Two mortar shells fired from Gaza explode in southern Israel on Wednesday morning; defense officials believe calm will hold in coming weeks. (headline Haaretz 24/8/11)
Ah! So THIS is the definition of calm!
Funny – I always imagined that “calm” meant that we would nor be bombarded on a daily basis with rockets and mortars.
So what -exactly – IS the definition?
0-5 rockets per day = calm
6-10 rockets per day = relatively calm
11 -20 rockets per day = quite calm
21-50 rockets per day = a slight change in the situation
51-100 rockets per day = we are beginning to be aware that the period of calm might, possibly, be coming to an end at some unspecified time in the future?
More than 101 rockets per day = perhaps now is the time that we devote some attention to the situation
You get the idea!
Andyboy – telling it as it is!
