    there was no disproportionate use of force per se..only the force necessary to stop the rockets. Even if there was proportionality, 8,000 rockets would have been launched against hamas for their 8000 rockets. Israel REPLIED with FAR fewer than that...The fact that hamas' rockets suck doesn't matter. They are launching ROCKETS with the specific hope that they kill civilians inside another sovereign UN recognized country. Thats what matters. Israel dropped leaflets, called in advance, sent warnings for civilians to leave..all exceptional measures...and besides, only 300 civilians were killed..far less than in so many other conflicts around the world. Would you move if say the native indians rocketed you to have their land back in vancouver? (and in reality, it's not even your land historically) whereas in israel, they historically were always there... you need a history lesson brent. you also need empathy lessons..or do you only feel for the 'poor' gazans?
