As someone who has unfortunately spent some time in the past occupying Gaza, this analysis is completely correct. All those people who shout 'Let the IDF win' have no idea what they're talking about, it is a near IMPOSSIBLE task for the IDF to completely reoccupy, PLACATE, and control Gaza - without keeping a long-term massive presence on the ground. The situation will in the long term would be much worse after a blood-soaked large scale invasion than beforehand: the rockets would just continue as before, and the extremists strengthened. The scary thing is the ease with which these rockets can be built and sent, it's not like there's a strategic infrastructure that can be knocked out. I'm pessimistic, the only thing that Israel can do is minimize the strikes with tactical strikes, develop anti-missile technology, and pray for an eventual political solution. Those Gazans... if only they had attempted to transform the strip into a model for peace after the Gaza pullout.
