You and I have very very different definitions of "eradication".
Israel could carpet bomb...(the gross misuse of that term in this thread not withstanding) and for a strip of land so small? It wouldn't take but a
day. Maybe two. They'd have a bomb blast wave covering or overlapping most square foot areas of the entire Gaza strip with few or no people left
without injuries ranging from sputtering cases of shell shock to simple ears ringing for the next week or three.
The death toll wouldn't be 700, as it was announced last night. it would be 70,000, heading to another 0 on the end before long. That's what Israel
has the raw power to do, any time they choose. They choose
Israel could do this, and have it done before the world could react in any meaningful way. If Israel wanted to add non-conventional weapons to it, and
get downright suicidal in the bargain (look at a map for downwind fall out issues), the could literally remove human habitation of the Gaza strip
forever, within an hour or less.
These are abilities Israel has and has openly, without question of raw power they COULD bring to bear. It's also as self evident by action, they
choose NOT to do this and instead, do get direct and personal in ways that get their own people killed in the process, despite there being *NO*
strictly military or tactical reason to do such a thing. In fact, their attempts at being humane hurt their own efforts and operations as a routine
factor to compensate for.
You see a people committing a form of genocide...somehow..and I see a people sick and tired of having it rain warheads. Now, able to get a warhead up
the tailpipe almost anywhere within Israel from anywhere within Gaza. That range and capability by Hamas IS a fairly new one as someone who has
watched all this carefully since long before 9/11 came along to put everything in high gear.
Put simply...I see a two sided fight with one side in perpetual defense...despite not
having to be by circumstances. I see a fight at least ONE
side would be happy to see end ..while the other has it in their own official mission statement that the fight can NEVER end as long as one Israeli
lives within the lands called Israel.
