Gaza another Vietnam ? Is Marcus off his meds ? Vietnam is 10,000 miles from the U.S. - it was a civil war , and the Vietnamese communists were not rocketing San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, or Honolulu . In contrast, as Marcus laments , all of souhthern Israel is becoming functionally uninhabitable. So, the analogy is ABSURD ( ditto for Lebanon , as the same mentality allowed Hezbollah to aasert dominion over the border and to carry out deadly attacks ). Marcus' way of thinking has caused Israel to become a punching bag - this perception is shared by Israel's neighbors.If Israel does not change this perception - that the Israel's political leaders or the IDF is too afraid or incompetent to protect Israel's citizenry - then Israel can expect MUCH MORE of the same. Lastly, Marcus trots out the silly excuse of not having "international support". 1000 rocket attacks in a year, and he is worried about whether the EU will support Israel ? Man, how weak, timid, and cowardly can you get ?
