it stand to reason that more kidnappings will follow?
haha, think about what you just said.
Your asking if Israel is very smart, because you know, the country with the 8th largest and 3rd most powerful military in the entire world is dealing
with disorganized terrorist groups causing trouble just over their border, and this is somehow streching the 8th largest military in the world too
thin. Then in the very next sentence, you point out how the enemy isdoing what they are doing because of Israel's harsh reaction, because everyone
knows how Israel will retaliate, and you imply that makes them smart somehow?
If more kidnappings follow, more people will be killed by Israel, yet that makes Israel the stupid one under your logic?
I think your logic is flawed sir. I also think saying Israel is being stretched too thin shows how ignorant you must be of the Israeli military.
Israel is brilliant for responding the way it has. They are forcing Hamas to act like a government, and so far Hamas has refused. The problem for
Hamas is that Israel is laying down some long term consequences, and when it is all said and done, the government of Hamas will have to answer to the
people for those consequences.
The lack of critical evealuation in the actions of the Israeli's amazes me. So far their strategy has unified their population, raised morale,
intimidated the hell out of threatening nations by calling up reserves, and left Hamas and Hezbella responsible and answerable for every piece of
infrastructure destroyed. They are doing this by taking causalities only on the outer edges of thier settlements, and military causualties during the
conflict, none of which leave long term consequences for Israel itself.
And in the meantime, all over the Arabic news forums online, the Iraqi Arabs are praising Israel for standing strong in the face of terrorism,
something Iraqi's know all too well, and pointing out how stupid Hamas and Hezbella are for inciting more violence, which is really stirring critical
thought among all Arabs throughout the region.
There is a bigger picture going on than is debated through the eyes of a few kidnappings and a few military responses, this is a hearts and minds war
that is putting the value of human life against the devalue of human life, and those who are opposing Israel, in the eyes of many Arabs, by the
arguments Hamas and Hezbella supporters themselves are making, are standing with those who don't value human life. Choose sides carefully, or better
yet, don't choose sides and see the region change before your eyes as the concept of democracy sinks in to the average Arab on the street who is
starting to figure out what democracy really means.
After all, choosing your government, and being able to hold your leaders accountable by tossing them out of power is a very new concept to that
