Last week's actions in Gaza were naked aggression, all inside Gaza. They were not defensive actions, Bomb food processing plants is naked aggression, not defense. If there is a military solution, why has no Israeli general found it in 42+ years? You may not have noticed. But Afghanistan is a lot different than Gaza. They don't even speak the same language. Yet the US is working on an exit plan while there is military action going on.
