but more importantly, who was retaliating during Cast Lead? Israel's side broke the cease-fire. Then, in response to Gazan retaliation, Israel mounted an ill-planned OFFENSE, not defense, that achieved none of its stated goals (its unstated goal of collective civilian punishment and terror, however, were achieved.) Also, having been to Hiroshima, I would wholeheartedly support investigating the civilian deaths of that misguided attack (which also failed in its state goal of destroying a strategic bridge in the city). How about instead of trying to justify the IDF's behavior by saying, "Everyone else is doing it," you start looking at everyone else's behavior and saying, "That's wrong, too."
