  •  In other words, you are calling for more bloodshed (6+ / 0-)

    Perhaps you have been asleep, when

    - Israel tried to eradicate rockets in a major offensive in 2004 (when it still had forces inside the Strip),

    - then in 2006 (after an - gasp - "offensive tunnel" was used to attack a tank and take Gilad Shalit prisoner),

    - then in 2008-9 during Cast Lead intended either to eradicate rockets, or find Shalit, or behead Hamas - depending upon who you were asking and at what time of day,

    - then in 2010 when the very same commandos attacked ships with civilian activists armed with sticks and marbles and perhaps a few knives, and still managed to get into trouble with some falling captive,

    - then in 2012, an operation curiously timed to the middle of an Israeli campaign and intended of course to eradicate rockets.

    Not counting endless other "operations" and "offensives" from The Greatest Military on Earth (TM), all leading to nothing but bloodshed and further radicalization on both sides.

    Some great critical thinking going on here, dude.
