    Dear John, you think US will protect its citizen only if other countrries bomb it and kill hundreds of its citizen. What about if mexio start firing rockets into Texas towns every now and then. Do you think US will keep quite to avoid harm to innocent Mexican civilian. Do you know that drone attacks in Pakistan kills civilians also. Do you know that NATO bombs even Wedding gatherings In Afghan every now and then. Can we say that 99% of US citizen (including you) wants innocent blood or think that blood is cheap. Do not talk illogic things. War is bad. But we should try to stop the first rocket. If we or UN can not stop it, then preaching Israel to not retaliate is foolish. Talking about excessive force is foolish. If your neighbour is lunatic and shooting at your children thru your window every now and then, what you will do. Will you keep quite saying that you do not want to harm others living in his house and will simply shoot back in his window not to harm anybody. You have police to take care of it. In Gaza case, if blockade is removed and Gaza is given full freedom, which of you will make sure that rocket won't be fire from there. UN? Arab countries? The people acting like caring for Gazan should advise them not to fire rocket and prepare them to accept two nation theory. Otheriwse it is pony
