    The IDF has no stomach for defeating and replacing the government in Gaza. All that is planned is another punitive raid, like Cast Lead I with maybe a little less damage to the UN buildings and more to US built and insured buildings. And maybe the seizure of the Philadelphi corridor. The GOI will then declare that the rest of Gaza is unoccupied but back under siege. And tanks will make sure to tear up any growing crops every 3 months or so. And the power and remaining water & sewer will go unrepaired until a cholera outbreak which will be blamed on Hamas. A few schools may be left standing and a field hospital will be set up just outside Sderot for the wounded civilians who can crawl there. And a big PR show will go on.
