While units in the U. They send a hospital to ensure survival on scene. Moreover, they establish mobile units with clear lines of authority, not an array of groups with competing objectives.
These teams can rove and respond, and are not unduly tethered to a central command base. The other part is to stop the dying.

Report: Domestic Terrorism Is Still a Greater Threat Than Islamic Extremism
He talks with government officials on both sides of the conflict, with relatives of murdered victims, with Palestinian refugees, and with his own friends and family, letting us sense what it feels like to live with the constant threat and the horrific frequency of shootings and suicide bombings.
Examining the motives behind the violence, he blames mistaken policies and actions on the Israeli as well as the Palestinian side, and details the suffering of Palestinians deprived of basic freedoms under strict Israeli controls. And finally, Horovitz makes us see the vast depth and extent of the mistrust between Israelis and Palestinians and the enormous challenges that underlie new attempts at peacemaking. Human and harrowing—and yet projecting an unexpected optimism— Still Life with Bombers affords us a remarkably balanced and insightful understanding of a seemingly intractable conflict.
