@Bradley. I'm not sure I agree with your anology between Gaza and Vietnam apart from the fact that the agressor will eventually end up leaving after destroying what's left of the land but there is one element I agree with. The Iran connection. I'm just waiting for news from the Israeli Prime Minister's Office finding arms and ammunition with Iranian markings on board the flotilla which will exonerate the the killing of civilians in international waters. That will ease criticism of Isral and redirect the world's attention to Iran.
