Siege, blockade, interdiction, lock-down, containment; there are a host of words describing the present Gaza position and none of them, it can be said, having much of a positive connotation. The same is also true of the overall situation; it's a tedious, expensive affair, unjust, not going anywhere, pointless, without rhyme or reason, just another instance of man's inability to get along with his fellowman. Maybe a better use of blockade tactics would be to use them against the entire conflict itself; cutting off the rationale that maintains it in being and enables it to trundle on regardless. It is only by carrying out a complete, root and branch reduction of the problem that any real progress can then be made. Reductio ad absurdum http://yorketowers.blogspot.com Or can you think of a better idea? After 60+ years, countless deaths and prohibitive expenditure, this now may be all that's left to us. And, if not this, what else is there but to continue ever onwards in the same old fashion?
