Hamas fire rockets when it suits them, we drop a couple of bombs or kill a few Hamas leaders then we negotiate a ceasefire and Hamas stick to the ceasefire until it suits them to break it. This time round we have launched an operation thats cost millions in which 3 Israelis have been killed so far and we are expected to go for just another temporary ceasefire, if thats all we are after why did we bother launching a full scale military operation and not just play the traditional game of temporary hudna? If Hamas want a ceasefire they are going to have to pay a much bigger price than that otherwise there will be no ceasefire, things will continue to escalate and Israel will launch a ground war which will result will be there will no longer be a building which hasn't been seriously damaged. The Gazan's havn't yet recovered from the damage done by Cast Led 4 years ago so can they deal with another ground war ?
