Well at Israel finally got a war. Not the war they wanted, but they got a war.
 
2012-11-14 11:22:08 AM  

Israel pretty much declared war over Twitter

The IDF has begun a widespread campaign on terror sites & operatives in the #Gaza Strip, chief among them #Hamas & Islamic Jihad targets.

wonder if the pound Gaza and pound Hamas were thought out

Israel assassinates the Hamas military chief (among others)?

Cool.

And here we see that Israel is also planning to "take out" Abbas, the head of the PLO.

Extra cool.

Ballsy, Israel, especially given that you're on such GREAT terms with all of your neighbors, (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, etc). Don't worry, Uncle Suggardaddy will be there to cover your ass.

Hell, the American Evangelicals might just get the Armageddon they've been praying for after all!

Is this Netanyahu's way of going home and "kicking the dog" after his boy Romney failed to win the US election?
 
2012-11-14 11:31:12 AM  

this is going to get bad

All options are on the table. If necessary, the IDF is ready to initiate a ground operation in Gaza.

The IDF has embarked on an operation against Hamas, an Iranian proxy responsible for terror attacks on Israel. #Iran #Gaza

I bet if we let Israel try and stand up to all of their Arab neighbors it'd be over in like, oh, 6 days.

I'm sure THIS conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians will be SOOOOO much different than all the rest.

Good thing they're not trying peaceful means, because THAT might work and then where would you be?

If there were terrorists groups set up across the US/Mexico border, firing rockets into US towns, what do you think the US gov't would do? What would most gov'ts do?

Israel continues to demonstrate amazing restraint.
 
2012-11-14 01:02:10 PM  
jesus tapdancing christ.

Look, Israel, the ONLY solution to stopping these Palestinian jihadists is to get rid of ALL the Palestinians. A "final solution," if you will. And I'm willing to bet not even the US will get behind you on that one.

YES I GODWINNED THE THREAD, WHACHA GONNA DO 'BOUT IT!??

The problem is getting rid of the factors that make these jihadists want to blow shiat up. A lot of them are pissed because they see Israel encroaching on lands that were not given to them in 1948, or settled on in '67, etc. Others hate them for just BEING there at all. And yet others do it for the lulz, and/or because hey, explosions!! Israel can fix problem #1, albeit it'll cause a lot of hate and discontent from their own populace. Not a damn thing they can do about problems #2 and #3.

So what do you do? What. Do. You. Do?

never going to happen
not without a TON more dead
It is cute, that both side continue the tit for tat justification for their actions.
Strange, they are both right!! LOL

And there's nothing there at Megiddo, except a Kibbutz 5 miles away. 2,000 years ago, it was a major trade center.

That's like saying Israel's Judaism is what's the cause for their defending themselves.

Islam is the excuse, what is the actual grievance?

Read the Hamas charter. The actual grievance is that Jews are allowed to live. Period.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad are groups filled with bad people, that believe and practice things that no western liberal would ever support, yet they make excuses for these groups all the time. Strange.

War.

Not so awesome.

Dancin_In_Anson: Nice shootin' Tex!


That was a very precise shot. I really hate that Israel has to do this, but I also understand their perspective. My problem is that I also sorta understand the Palestinian perspective. Of all the places in the world that I don't think will ever have peace, that's right at the top. Score one for organized religion, I guess.

What are you talking about? Two Israelis have died from Gaza rocket attacks this year:

Link

Jan - Feb - No injuries in Israel
March - 3 people injured, one seriously
April - 2 injured
May - No injuries
June - 2 killed 7 injured
July - September - No injuries
October - 2 dead goats, 9 injured goats, 5 human injuries
November - 3 injuries

We've already had two border patrol agents die this year along the Mexico / US border... Are you suggesting we start bombing Mexico?

Are there a lot of rocket attacks? Yes. Do most of them do no damage? Yes. It sucks that the rocket attacks happen, but 2 deaths and 20 injuries hardly warrants major bombings. You seem to be suggesting Israel shouldn't go the peace route (by saying they are showing restraint, I'm guessing you think they should kill more people in the Gaza Strip) but really, they should give it a REAL chance.

Coolfusis: Can we just once let these idiots get their shiat slapped and learn their place in the world?


The rest of the world frowns on bombing Jews, but I agree we should kick the shiat out of Israel, make those dogs heel, and lick the boots of their American masters.
 
2012-11-14 03:00:52 PM  
Of course, the flip side is "Stop building illegal settlements. No. Stop building illegal settlements. No...."

2012-11-14 03:02:40 PM  
Two kids dead already. More to come, probably.

And what really annoys me is that I can see Israel actually has decent justification for a change. I can't fault them for striking against someone that's been firing rockets into your country.
