It was not pointless. If your going to blockade a certain area then you have to stop ships before they breach the blockade. The stupid thing was the tactics used. The commandos should have boarded the ship using riot gear instead of paintball guns. Sure just nicely boarding the ship armed with non lethal paintball guns is great for the media so you can say it was all a peaceful affair on Israels part but the problem is the men were not able to deal with a mob armed with iron bars & knives without having to resort to lethal force. If the men had been sent in firing tear gas grenades and with rubber bullets in their guns its not going to look to good on the news but nobody would be killed.
