Bush disastrous exploit in Iraq has, as his own generals admit, has proven that in the long run terrorism will not be defeated by military means. It engenders while it uproots. Arens still harbours the illusion that there are "decisive defeats" in this war. Katyushas and mortar shells are no match for the military might of Israel and surely the Palestinians know that if Ashquelon is bombed then the IDF will lead an all out blitz of Gaza City. Not likely to happen.
