The only way to end a war is to bring such destruction on an aggressive enemy that he will never wish for it again. Half-measure wars leave the aggressors as heros in their native lands, and they will re-build and commit aggression again. It is time for us to turn our heads and let the Israelis do just that - visit incredible destruction on these people so they cut the fucking shit. From the destruction, a Palestine may emerge that is able to accept the reality of Israel and the reality it must adjust to it instead of trying to destroy it. Anyone who thinks peace is possible with Hamas in power is a fucking idiot.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Clearly that's what we should have done a long time ago but we are so friggin heavily infiltrated in the foreign policy making by AIPAC, neocons, and many pro-Zionists including our religious right that it is impossible for us to live in a vacuum. At this point we need to take a stand and just simply side one group and stop the fkin hypocrisy.
If the USA sides Israel 100% and stops ALL support to the Palestinians, Egyptians, Jordanians and other Arabs on this issue then I am 100% behind this initiative and will support Israel as well. I simply refuse to be complicit to this bullshit!
How difficult is it for the US to come out of the closet and simply stop bullshiting the Arabs that we are a fair player?

Those are Daisy Cutters. A computer map of a set of geographical co-ordinates are fed into the targeting system of a globular shaped main bomb, and the bomb, after release, blows open, firing little computer-targeted mini-rockets pointed to cover that geograhical area so that it covers every square meter or so, the mini rockets are tipped with a bomblet full of military-spec razor blades that will land nicely in the center of it's assigned square meter, the tracers you see is the rocket exhaust, watch the ground and you will see little explosions where the mini-rockets explode, sending spinning razor blades through the air covering every square inch of the intended geographical area. Any human being who is not in a tank, within that geographical area is killed or amputated. It also usually leaves behind little land mines (fleshettes) that those attempting to save the wounded can step on. It can also set off ammunition dumps by smashing firing primers and such. They are usually used on military barracks, or dropped behind a fortified position prior to attack. It is considered a war crime to use them on civilian populations. It's an American weapon, as American as apple pie. When you see pictures of Iraqi kids with four limbs missing that's what they got hit with, or they played with a fleshette, which looks like a cute little Bionicle.

Looks like something they will get away with, since from the looks of it it seems to be very precise and must be targeting people with Hamas tattooed on their foreheads.

Phosphorus bombs -- burn flesh on contact. It's a war crime to use them against humans. Israel used them in Lebanon and claims they're just to provide cover for their soldiers.

You clearly do not understand the full extent of the problem.

They just cannot learn....

Hamas leader: We reject a permanent truce with Israel

Meanwhile, the deputy head of Hamas's political bureau on Wednesday said his group is studying peace initiatives to end the violence in Gaza Strip but rejects permanent truce with Israel.

Exiled Hamas leader Moussa Abou Marzouk said there will be no talks about a permanent cease-fire and that as long as there is an Israeli occupation, there will be resistance.

Marzouk spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday - one day after Egypt and France proposed a plan for ending the fighting in Gaza.

Abu Marzouk said Hamas received proposals from France, Turkey, Syria and Egypt to bring about a cease-fire.

He said Hamas stands by its demands for an immediate end to Israel's offensive, Israeli withdrawal from Gaza and opening of the border with the strip.

Also Wednesday, Osama Hamdan, a Hamas representative in Lebanon close to the group's leadership in Syria, told al-Jazeera television that Hamas would not accept any initiative that does not include the withdrawal of the Israeli army from Gaza and the opening of all of the territory's border crossings.

"Any proposal that does not include these bases is unacceptable and no one should bother by presenting such proposals," he said.

"The idea of an international force is rejected and such forces which will come to Gaza to protect Israel will be dealt with as enemy forces," he said.
