    Default Gaza

    Self defense?

    The new Warsaw ghetto?

    Vacation home spot?

    Expected response, eventually.

    You piss off a country that has better weapons and tactics, eventually they're going to find a reason to use them.

    The Israelis are just getting their dirty work done before Obama takes office.

    Isn't condensing a million and a half people into a small area and then imprisoning them with a huge wall considered dirty work?

    Do you think Obama or other parts of our government will take a harder stance against Israel? I have not seen any indictation of this.

    Doubtful. We failed to create other possible staging areas in Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Israel is our only foothold in the Middle East, a region quickly gaining economic and political importance, especially as Russia and China build alliances in the area. If any of the last three of our interventions in the area had actually worked as planned, you might have been able to see a tougher stance towards Israel. Now? We'll go on ignoring the atrocities just as we always have, and the average American will remain clueless. Israel = Jesus = good = don't fuck with Israel.

    Asinine.

    Not necessarily a harder stance, but Israel timed this for Bush's lame duck period for a reason. The middle east is always a political minefield, and Bush just ignored it. A non lame-duck president will not be allowed to just ignore the problem.

    I think the specific people involved are irrelevant, this was more of an issue of taking advantage of a president in a coma, and withdrawing as soon as we had a real president in office.
