    Howdy Kris; "The military option did neighter stopp quassams nor did it slow them down quite contrarily." Well, it hasn't stopped them completely yet, but there was a report from the Israeli Ministry of Defense to the Cabinet which showed that the number of rockets fired has been reduced over the course of the past year or so. "Not even the illegal collective punishments, israel inposed on them did any good." Economic sanctions take time to work. There is nothing illegal about an economic blockade of war material to the enemy during a period of armed conflict. The economic sanctions so far have been pretty mild. There are many more turns of the economic screw left before the blockade rises to the level of collective punishment. The only question is to what degree of severity and for how long must the embargo be maintained before Hamas cries uncle and stops the rocket fire.
