Both sides should have nuclear weapons.

One side already does have nukes, doesn't use them. If the other side had them, they would use them, and then in the matter of a couple of hours a good portion of the Middle East is radioactive.

Good plan. Yup.

It sure wasn't "Hmm... Maybe I should put thousands of dollars into food for the people, infrastructure, maybe education for the kids...", which would have been better than "BUY ALL THE ROCKETS!!!"

Just this year alone, here is a list of rockets fired. Also, if you Google cease fire agreements, I don't see a single one that Hamas hasn't broken. But you know, they're totally put upon and being repressed. Unjustly. 

I just have a hard time feeling any sympathy for a group who sends men, women or children with bombs strapped to them against civilians. They can cry "THE BLOCKADE!" all they want, but the reality is all they have to do is accept Israel exists, and offer to peacefully work with them. THEN if Israel reacts with violence, sure, pound your chest and scream "SEE! See how I've been wronged!" Until then, I feel very, very little sympathy for them.

Since November 14th, Iron Dome has made about 130 interception of rockets launched by Hamas. So yeah, what you are seeing are rockets being shot out of the sky.

They need to put their dumbass, stone age differences aside. F*ck religion. F*ck politics. It's the 21st century. Leave the past in the past, and work together. Canada and the United States are perfect examples of co-operation between different countries. We're primarily catholic and anti-gun with a socialist type government. You know what you're government is so there's no point in re-iterating it. We get along. We co-operate. We don't fire shots across the border even when we don't agree. They're both idiot people's who need to find a common ground and stop the f*cking fighting.

Well done, Israel - you've successfully invested hundreds of millions of dollars into technology that will prevent attacks that could theoretically cause dozens' of dollars in damage. What? It's someone else's money? Even better.

And those pesky undesirables in your walled-off ghetto will never be heard from again. Until you invade them the next time, at least.

This is the kind of dangerous oversimplification that we need to stop perpetuating.

Also, even when they do yell "SEE! See how I've been wronged!" after every time civilians are "accidentally" killed, nobody seems to hear it.

The fact is, they are both being dicks. I would argue that Israel is being more of a dick (mainly because they have a much bigger one).

I am willing to bet that if a loved one of yours was randomly killed by an unsympathetic attacker, it would not matter who did it. You would want them to pay by whatever means you could muster.

Is it not obvious to everyone that this recent surge of activity might have something to do with an election thats coming up?

Honestly all we need to do to stop all the fighting between hamas and israel is load up every b52 we have with a full mix of heavy, light and incendiary then drop them in a line along the border between them.

When the people on the beach and in the hills stop pissing themselves I doubt there will be many left who are willing to fight.

You have to force peace on aggressors.
We do that. We're the USA.

So, basically these are mini patriot missiles that intercept aircraft/missiles at the short range?

What's the cost per each of these compared to the rockets the HAMAS folks are launching?

I wonder how long it'll take for modern armies to go back to artillery shells, cause I'm thinking those are a hell of a lot harder to take down than missiles.

Well, those are much harder to hide, and launch, then a rocket.

From what i've seen, these rockets are basically like what you buy in a hobby store, except with simple explosive warheads at the top, but otherwise pretty similar. you can probably build, and launch, a hundred of these for what a single piece of artillery would cost. Let alone trying to sneak a howitzer around.

back when they'd had all of a year or three and next to no money, they kicked the snot out of their neighbors with not much more than castoff surplus gear from the US and Britain.

lesson being, don't fark with israel. they have a tradition of ass-kickery that goes back to the dawn of recorded history.

Iron Dome is similar to the RAM launchers on US Navy ships. It works, but the program costs were quite high. The rockets and missiles being fired into Israel need only be sophisticated enough to hit a very large target- say, for example, a small city. Iron Dome must be sophisticated enough to hit small, fast-moving projectiles. I have no doubt the cost-per-shot for Iron Dome is higher than the cps for the local knock-off of a old Soviet bombardment rocket, but that doesn't matter- it's vastly less expensive than suffering civilian casualties.

Except... Israel could stream roll the entire Palestinian population tomorrow and end the problem immediately, they haven't for what reason?

Let's reverse the situation, precisely how long do you think the Palestinians would wait to steam roll the Jews right off the map if they could?

The US. No major war has happened in the US mainland since our civil war. I suppose you could make an argument for the wars of native pacification, but I don't see them as on domestic soil. We took the land, it was an offensive.

Pearl Harbor was a territory at the time of WW2. So were a lot of other places that didn't end up as states. There were other things like balloon bombs and submarines lobbing shells, but not significant ones.
