Mark... Does it really matter whether these were mortars, rockets or trail balloons. I respect your opinion... honestly, because I believe you're an intelligent person. But this situation in Gaza is unsustainable. How long have Palestinians been living in Gaza... I don't know, maybe 500 years or longer. If they don't establish civil structures or lawful authority... from the bottom up, nothing will change. And five years from now... me and you will have the exact same discussion. Time to move on. Regards...
