What are these idiots thinking?? DETERRENCE? This is like the guy whose business strategy was to lose money on each sale but eventually make a profit on volume. Its just pathetic. The Olmert regime has made no real effort to end rocket fire from Gaza, apparently thinking it affects relatively few Israeli voters, and only kills a dozen Israelis per 3000 rockets. No other government in the world acts this way -- NO WHERE! The solutions are obvious, they just don't want to bother. What a sorry excuse for a government. If Mexico fired 3000 rockets into El Paso, their entire country would be a smoking hole in the ground by now. Equivalent response if Ireland fired 3000 rockets into Belfast, or Morocco fired 3000 rockets into Gibralter. Imagine the world outcry at the UN if Israel responded by randomly firing 3000 artillery rockets into downtown Gaza City, instead of hitting Hamas terrorists in their cars with smart missiles fired through the window. That would be "proportional response".
