Video of aftermath of Wednesday night IAF attacks on Gaza

This is a video that mostly shows the aftermath this morning of last night's IAF attacks on Gaza. Please watch it and then I have some comments.

Note that at the end of the video they say that five more Kassams were shot at Sderot this morning. Is the pattern familiar to any of you? It should be. It's the same pattern we were in two summers ago in Lebanon: We hit with pinpoint air strikes and they hit back with indiscriminate rocket attacks. We can't win like this.

There are two options. One is a Dresden-like bombing from the air that will so devastate the 'Palestinians' that they will have no choice but to surrender. The other is to send in the ground troops and occupy Gaza. A combination of the two might also work. The alternative is to God forbid move everyone to a small radius around Tel Aviv and to start giving swimming lessons.

I hope that a stepping up of targeted attacks on Hamas leadership in conjunction with even more air and ground attacks will have some effect especialy if carried out for more than a week or two.I'm not sure that Israel could launch a massive ground offensive as your govt seems too afraid of world opinion...I'm at a loss as to what is best.

Another alternative is to cut off all economic traffic into and out of Gaza. That includes water, electricity, food, medicine. Cut it off, don't demand anything. Just stop helping them live.

Carl, unless and until Israel decides to finally, completely, indisputably win this war and dictate terms to the 'palis', Israel is going to continue to fight this war in perpetuity.

It really is that simple.

I agree with you. See the article I posted about Dichter a few minutes ago.

I agree with Kranky. Jews have a phobia about winning today. I understand the Gentile fear of Jewish power but I don't get why Jews have to internalize it to the extent they think its not in their own interests to win a war.
