Israel could have prevented this by properly utilising their Iron Dome defence systems, which will stop everything from a bullet to a bomb from
passing a given border line, if active and set up for full coverage.
They do not set it for full coverage, because otherwise they would not be able to justify the occasional and piece by piece genocide of Palestinians.
Also, they know as well as anyone, that air strikes kill more civilians than combatants, which makes the problem worse not better. They also have
snipers and access to some of the best firearms available anywhere on the face of earth. The fact that they did not decide to remove ONLY the
combatants, that they elected NOT to utilise the incredible anti-projectile capabilities they poses, leads me to believe that this retaliation is
I would think that would be a counter productive tactic. You're not taking into account how much each of those cost to use every time. Besides,
that's not exactly a strategy to fix the problem. It's kind of like staying on your side of the fence with a tennis racket while your neighbor keeps
tossing rocks into your yard. Eventually you're going to miss a few or just get damn tired of doing it. Lets also pretend that every time you swing
with that racket, you have to buy new strings. Make any sense? Yeah, neither does relying on this Iron Dome to make the actions stop. They're there
for a purpose, yes... But it doesn't solve anything and it certainly doesn't stop that bully from tossing rocks in your yard.
I don't know of any point in any war where countries didn't attack because civilians were in the way. It's how it's always been. Why is now any
different? I get it... It's sad. It's horrible. I hate the loss of human life, period. But what can you do? Do you think that we worried about
the poor innocent civilians when we dropped an atom bomb on Japan twice? We dropped leaflets because we wanted the civilians to know what was coming.
The same is true there. Those people know. It's not like their clueless. Also.. Consider what's going on. Compare it with something here in the
In certain locations in the US, high crime areas to boot... People do not rat out other people to the law, even if those bad guys are murdering,
stealing or whatever against them. Follow me so far? But the right thing to do is either:
- Fess up and show the law where the bad guys are.
- Take out/do something about the bad guys themselves if they don't believe in talking to the cops.
If they don't talk to the cops and they don't do something themselves, are these people responsible for their own malady? Be honest... What should
happen? Where is the problem? I mean, you have all these witnesses but no one wants to do anything about it. So is it the people's problem or the
Compare this the same way to the issue we're discussing. It's the same thing.
It's simply not ok to blow stuff up on one side if those people are trying their best to blow stuff up on yours? The solution is just to let it
happen and be totally ok with it? They should just keep pouring money in a defense that they shouldn't need in the first place?
It reminds me of a scenario where this monkey was trying to raid this storehouse but was repelled by an electric fence. One day he discovered that if
he kept grounding out the electric fence with a tree limb, the power would go out for a short amount of time. One day the monkey over saturated the
fence with a lot of limbs and shorted out the power to the storehouse. The next day, the farmer came back and found his storehouse decimated all
because the monkey found a loophole around his defenses.
