    So I'm watching this stuff on the news about the missiles coming out of Gaza. It didn't would like anyone was hurt and I hope that's still the case. My question is this, Isrel has proven time and again they can swat Hamas, or whoever is is responsible for launching these missiles into Isrel with ease. And it's been going on for years. So why hasn't Isrel just rolled the tanks into Gaza and wiped out the terrorists yet? They are more then capable. Is it political? Is there fear other countries will attack them ? Sorry to come off dumb about it. Just looking for a clue is all.

    The terrorists are not the fundamental problem. Wiping out the "terrorists" won't fix the fundamental problem.

    Israel, like its big sister, the US, needs an enemy. In our case it's so the MIC will remain in charge and in Israels case it's so they can keep playing victim to win support of the US MIC contingent. They go hand in hand.

    The freedom fighters in Gaza don't have any missiles. All they have are rockets, which are fired in the hope that it will hit something besides an open field or a parking lot.

    The Israeli's have missiles. Meaning they have a guidance system and are very accurate. ... :cool:

    As a goofy convert safely ensconced in the Great Satan, are you hoping for some islamo-street cred using the goofy “freedom fighter” label for Islamic terrorists?

    Yep! It's a dilemma. Israel has the capability to annihilate the Palestinians but lack the desire as proven by giving into Palestinian demands like a Jew free Gaza only to be thanked with rocket missile bases in this land.

    The Palestinians have the desire to annihilate Israel but lack the capability as proven by their assault with everything they do have.

    Just how stupid are the Palestinians? Can they ever learn that if they attack &/or kill one or more Israelis, Israel will retaliate & every time the Palestinians death toll will far exceed that of Israelis. Should they not be the ones to initiate peace offerings???

    This is a good summary of the strategies being played out by Israel, Hamas and PIJ (Iran).

    Israel's maximum restraint


    Every Hamas commander and Islamic Jihad commander knows they can be targets. But they also know generally how the response works. You fire rockets, your rocket teams will die. You fire rockets, your bases will be struck. But civilians will mostly go unharmed. This isn’t 2002; this isn’t 2009. Israel has achieved extraordinary precision in its use of judicious and proportionate responses.

    But with proportionality the devil is in the details. A rocket strike for an airstrike? Not even. It’s more like several rocket launches for an airstrike. This is the “clean” war, the war in which the Iron Dome defensive system intercepts almost 90% of the projectiles that are calculated to hit civilian areas. There are few casualties. There are many near misses.

    How many rockets is too many for Israel to accept? Two hundred in a day? Five hundred in two days? One thousand? The threshold has not been reached. In the past, there were up to 460 fired over several days.

    Each rocket brings Israel closer to a choice and a calculated escalation. PIJ seems to calculate as well. No rockets over Tel Aviv or Jerusalem – yet.
