But I don’t think the full impact of that has caught on with all of them yet. I think they didn't understand that as “the state”, they can't attack other states with impunity (especially states with big powerful militaries) and not get the shit bombed out of them.

When they were just a bunch of guys with masks sneaking about shooting the occasional 107 they could not be held accountable. Now, through the miracle of democracy, the whole of the state and population of Gaza is now bearing responsibility for the actions of Hamas.
Very, very good point. Government is, by definition, allowed to exist by the will of the people (even the worst government). So, whatever actions Hamas takes? Are with the approval (or at least, without the disapproval) of those who elected them.

I think you missed the point. Elections were held and they elected Hamas to represent them. Now they will be held accountable for the actions of the "government" that they elected.

First off, I'm not the most articulate person at times. As of late, I have grown tired of saying the politically correct thing or speaking eloquently in order to not offend people. I like SOCNET because I can come here and find like-minded people that utilize common sense. However, I am disappointed with Vincent and anybody that agrees with him.

War is f*cking hell, plain and simple. You can't water it down or make it clean. There is only ONE way to win a war and that is to kill your enemy. Read that again: the only way to win a war is to f*cking kill your enemy. Anybody that disagrees is a pansy and if the responsibility of maintaining freedom and way of life was ever left to said pansy, we would be overrun in a short amount of time.

Death is a MF'er and one helluva rectifier. If they're dead, they can't protest. If they're dead, they can't shoot rockets. If they're dead, they can't have kids to fight your kids. If they're dead, they are no longer a problem.

I never understood where the disconnect was with hippies.

I hope that Israel kicks the daylights out of those animals and indiscriminately kills everything in the Gaza strip. Also, I hope that the world recognizes the problem these Muslims are causing and hunts them down to extinction. I don't give a shit if it's a hamster. If it's muslim, it needs to be shot.

Someone earlier asked if a distinction should be made between the moderates and militants. My answer is NO, kill them all. The moderates (actively or passively) support the militants and give them a nurturing environment.

Who they need is Bibi Netanyahu.. He is a no BS guy and is a hard liner against these nutjobs. I like him, he's a good man. As a plus ~ he was Israeli Special Operations. His brother was the one killed in the Entebe rescue.

I've been asking that question for years now. It ain't like the surrounding "Arabic" countries don't have land.....

Stay safe.

Israel was foolish to ever give up the West Bank and Gaza. They need to now take these area's back, as the populations there have proven over and over that they view any "peace process" as a necessary stepping stone to Israel's eventual destruction.

I guess Alexander, Genghis Khan, MacArthur and Sun Tzu were all pansies.

There are 1.4 billion Muslims in the world. You want to make war on all of them? Change Muslim to Jew in your post and you sound like fucking Hitler.

Get your schwarma stand on one side of the street, and your kosher hot dogs on the other. And becasue it's Texas, tortilla stand on both sides.

Whoa, Mexican peacekeepers, I can't believe I just stumbled on to that.
