    that such a spin could be put on what is an act of war by a gang of criminals, seeking a propaganda victory. This is NOT Vietnam, in any shape or form, the contention is absurd. This is a case of a bunch of Israel-haters mounting an operation designed to make sure Israel emerges as the bad guy, whatever we do. But Bradley, you know that. Now Israel has not only been deprived of its right to defend itself under any circumstances by the international community - now we have Israelis parroting the international line. How puerile. We were within our rights to board the ship, within our rights to search the ship and once attacked, 100% within our rights to fight back. Considering that Gaza is run by a thugocracy with the declared aim of destroying Israel, a blockade of any shipment of any materials into Gaza by any group other than Israel is legitimate. Anything less is defeatist idiocy for which the whole country pays, even you Bradley.
