    Sure we care, but it's not going to change the manner in which we respond. Not because we don't care, but because we have to do what we have to do to defend our nation.

    My comment about not givng a crap about using human shields wasn't about how citizens like you & I feel, it was about how we'll respond. And if terrorist hide behind innocents, we're still going to respond with great force.

    And the results are on those doing the hiding.

    This is baffling on a number of levels. Let's just consider that first, Palestine is not a nation, and second, no one, myself included, is suggesting that Israel cannot or should not respond to attacks.

    You'd prolly go round & round on this for days....

    Well, I wanted to use the word terrorists, but you already protested that.

    So if I know WHERE the missile are coming from, shouldn't I attack those localities?

    I just don't understand what your position is.....maybe you can clarify that for me?

    Not sure about you, but I couldn't possibly care less. I'm beginning to get to the point where I honestly don't think I'd remotely care if the two sides nuked one another into oblivion.

    And that's the problem: I don't know, and I don't know if a sustainable resolution is even possible. What I do think is that the lawn mower approach is not going to be effective, and that Israel is losing on the optics here quite badly (for example, after the UN floats the possibility of Israel having committed war crimes, Israel goes ahead and shells a UN school, killing 15 civilians). I don't see how this ends any other way than with Israel being as isolated in the world as ever.

    I'm all set. If you haven't been following along, I don't think there's much more I can do.

    There's the problem. No one says they know the right answer, just that they are sure that someone else's answer is wrong.

    The UN? Hardly an unbiased party here, especially given that missiles have been found in two of their facilities (schools at that). That might be a clue as to why schools are being targeted: that's where the weapons are being stored. That's the real war crime that won't even be discussed at the UN.

    Probably because there's a substantial probability no such answer exists, especially under Israel's current government.

    Do you really think this is going to accomplish anything for Israel in the long run? Do you think that once they're done exacting their usual tariff for rocket strikes and taking bunker selfies, the attacks are going to stop? Or do you think this is going to invite more attacks in the future?

    I think these particular missile attacks will stop, at least for awhile.

    See: Nikolai's analysis in the Gaza thread here:

    Not me buddy....I actually hate both parties. And if I found out someone was employed by a political party to engage in internet banter, I'd pound them senseless! :D
