    Danite, emotionalism is no replacement for a policy, or even a thought about a policy (which applies to you, my emotional friend). Did it occur to me that firing into empty spaces is "a warning"? Imagine, it did occur to me. But I rejected it. A warning must show somehow what will come next. If the warning doesn't hurt the militants, and there is nothing visible of what can comes next, then it is a totally useless "warning". It isn't a warning. It is doing "something" in place of thinking about a policy. The IDF is not allowed to fire on civilians; it is a war crime. It can fire on militants, but then they have to avail themselves in the empty spaces being bombarded. They don't do that. Israel wants a delux occupation, by remote control, with the PA dealing with the population. Israel is bent on more annexation, so the Pals don't cooperate. One way is for Israel to reoccupy Gaza (no delux occupation). For more sensible possibilities, read my post #111.
