Either you were just fell off the turnip truck, or you have a very limited, very selective memory.
Hamas and Hizb'allah take turns attacking Israel. Since the neighboring nations apparently took enough ass-kickings, Lebanon hosts Hizballah and of
course Gaza's market is cornered by Hamas.
Recall that from Gaza, it started out with the occasional rocket. Then it progressed. Then it got a bit crazy, and there are threads still on ATS
that document the warnings Israel gave to Hamas for weeks on end, to stop the rockets, or face retaliation.
I guarantee. Someone shoots at me, even if they miss, I'll hunt them down and kill them.
They take a shot at my family, I'll hunt them down, kill them, and then go after their family and friends.
This is to provide a clear demonstration of the cost/benefit principle.
Hamas and Hizballah are too stupid for normal retaliation principles to sink in, so it's best overdone.
That's the downside of stupidity. It takes more convincing to get through the dullness of stupid minds.
We'll watch it, and see if it continues, or if it was a lone knucklehead.
Israel has some new stuff since the last time Hizballah decided to play. Would be curious to see just how devastating the new developments can be
with actual targets.
