    First force Israel to respond, then cut them off:

    Abbas shows his colorful feathers too:

    Have the 'rockets' stopped falling in Israel? Pretty easy to stop this, you know?

    Israel must not be stopped. This must be seen through to the finale.

    Well from what I've read, no. But I haven't heard of the rockets doing any damage, which is probably why you haven't heard about it alot.

    My point being, if we've supposedly destroyed all their military bases and security compounds then all that is left to do is invade.

    Does anyone not get the following basic concept about war?

    Artillery (in this case missiles) will not solve the entire damn problem.

    Just like any modern endeavor, the air can't do it all. The ground troops are needed to take out the enclaves that are sending the missiles. Robert-there's been quite the lose of life in Israel in the past week, not to mention 2 schools hit, the fact that kids weren't there is not the fault of Hamas.

    Do me a favor and read my post completely again instead of just quoting it.

    The fact Israel hasn't invaded like they should of done a long time ago speaks volumes. They KNOW the only way to solve the problem is a ground invasion, yet never gone through with it.

    And it's not like they haven't had their chances. The U.S. would delay any UN Resolution or Veto any UN Resolution trying to condemn Israel. That's why Israel had free reign on bombing last time when the U.S. held up the UN Resolution that would tell Israel to stop.

    They did in '06, US and UN made them pull back, same will happen now. You agree, they shouldn't? That's what it seems you're saying.
