    The real problem for Israel here is to decide the lesser of evils. The obvious, is to bomb the Strip back to the stone age. Secondly, a more limited barrage of 155m shells (tried recently to Israel's detriment). Bombing empty fields is a waste ot shells (and money), and just strengthens the militants resolve. Arens is probably the most right...go back into parts of the Strip that are essential to patrol, search for and destroy the militants. As far as being ashamed...this conflict is not about pride, it's about Jewish survival. If the old-timers cannot do it, then new leadership is needed. No country would allow Kassam rockets to hit their soil (no matter what the EU FM says). See what England, France, Italy and other countries would do in similar circumstances. When you allow one Kassam, you are inviting Katyushas and Shihabs NEXT.
