    S: "Give me just 24 hours at the Helm of the IDF. I can promise you Yoel Marcus, Gaza will not even send us a fire cracker." I believe that Marcus has already answered you: YM: "Shortly before he [Sharon] suffered his stroke, he considered the option of aerial bombardment of the areas from which Qassams are launched, but dropped the idea when it was made clear to him that anyone who starts indiscriminate bombing of a civilian population is liable to end up in the International Criminal Court in The Hague." Sharon was a war criminal from way, way back, Steven i.e. you may be a bombastic fool, but Sharon had Plenty Of Form, and the spilling of innocent blood didn't much fuss him. Yet even he blanched at doing what you, apparently, are boasting you would do. You would head straight to the Netherlands, Steven, and you wouldn't even have time to grunt "Huh? Wha' happen'????" before you found yourself in the dock answering some very pointed questions. Bet On It.
