    keep firing these rockets and eventually the pressure is going to be on Bibi to authorize Cast Lead 2 and finish the job Olmert screwed up at Livni's request. Cast Lead took place during an election campaign and so out of solidarity all parties put their campaigns on hold while it was going on. Bibi was way out in front in all the polls and the election was getting closer and Livni needed campaign time so she pressured Olmert into calling for an unconditional withdraw of all Israeli soldiers before the IDF was ready. Thanks to Livni & Olmert a potential victory was turned into a defeat and so Hamas still have plenty of rockets. We cannot be passive forever and rely on Iron Dome to save us or hope for the best eventually the only option will be Cast Lead 2. In the meantime the IDF should have combat UAVS patrolling Gaza 24/7 and if they spot somebody even setting up a system to launch a rocket then the UAV fires a missile of its own first and kills the terrorists and the threat. UAVS will also have terrorists on edge constantly because unlike a jet those things are quiet and ... one minute Mr terrorist is out getting some milk next thing you know he has been killed by a Hellfire missile.
