I disagree with that. Israel wanted to build their own anti-missile system and the US came in and told them it would not work and gave them the
technology to make it impenetrable based on US intelligence gathering to Hamas's capabilities.
The reason no one is stepping in is, there simply is NO NEED to help. Hamas is firing ROCKETS but the system will even be a deterrent to almost all
missiles. Unless Hamas can start getting their hands on Ballistic Missiles the only damage that will occur is from falling debris.
And you are right Hamas is using citizens as human shields, a similar situation happened in a Russian movie theater some time ago and Russian police
came in and killed everyone including hostages to solve the threat. That worked out well - problem solved!
I do not support terrorism or Hamas - make that abundantly clear. I was on the opposite side of the Hudson River when the World Trade Center fell,
designing handrails for the Colgate Waterwalk. Spending that beautiful morning in NJ watching people fall to their death! What I support is life,
solving a problem by killing children to me is wrong and if I lived in Israel I would gladly take a missile from Hamas in the rear end, then to watch
a child do the same in Gaza from Israel. No matter who started it!
The lack of compassion, eye for an eye attitude is why eventually Hamas will now be looking for ballistic missiles from whoever they can side with to
get them. (Gee, I think someone close to this area might have a few BM's laying around - I wonder do they hate Israel also?) The enraged Palestinians
now have revenge in their blood from all Israel has done, which I can only assume Israel has had to begin with, given their actions/reactions. Now,
more then likely, this has galvanized an entire race of people to do nothing more with their broken lives but seek the extermination of the Jews,
And don't confuse my disappointment with anger, Israel chose bloodshed and death, now it is just a matter of time before they get it, again. Isn't
My major disappointment, being an American, is when WW3 starts from some random country attempting to nuke Israel with a BM. My country will have to
step in. And just like America has done so well in the past in foreign relations, they will screw it up, making this all even worse.
All for what, Israel's need to prove a point to Hamas? Gaza? Gas? Revenge?
