“Why would a painting of English cabs be entitled ‘Cannon Fodder‘? This seemingly placid London street scene demonstrates the brutality of spying. When Mossad officers had too few men for an operation, they sometimes hire real London cabbies to pick up dangerous people or cargo. The other side, of course, will always assume the driver is one of your people. So if the cabbie is killed, well…at least it wasn’t one of your own. Others, like the cab driver, are considered expendable. So when case officers walk past a line of taxis in a queue, they might refer to them as ‘cannon fodder.'”
