Let me see... there are 30 terrs in the mosque shooting at idf troopers. CAll in Arty and take the mosque out, then use air to flatten whats left. As for why the politicians are debating sending in their full militaryu power is beyond me. Israel wants to win this or it does not. problem with non military defence ministers and Olmert is that they have no expereince. They will do the usual politically correct decision and hold back troops. Either overwhelm your enemy with massive firepower, or pull back out and stay home. If Olmert only does this piece meal, he should be tried for treason. Israel needs to be defended, and he is screwing around. Never do your enemy a small injury... its called deterence
