The tragedy of Israeli-thinking is to paint ourselves into corners where we convince ourselves that there is no alternative. As with the ill-fated misadventure this week - there are those who thought (before the event) that there was no alternative. I would imagine that even they, now, realize that even doing nothing, is an alternative worthy of consideration. Too many of our wars began because our leaders thought there was no alternative. I would ban taking any action, unless at least three (different) alternatives were proposed. If there is only one option on the table, it should be rejected out-of-hand.
