The army could conquer and control the Gaza Strip today if the government orders such an operation, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Friday.
“If the cabinet will want the IDF to conquer and control Gaza, this is something that is possible today if it is deemed fit,” Barak said, speaking at a conference at the Fisher Brothers Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies in Herzliya

Oh good lord... Duct tape has 1001 uses. I have discovered # 1002. There is a certain defense minister that could be prevented from starting a WAR if his lips are simply closed for awhile, in some serious way. Hmm.... Yes.. that would be the 1,002nd use! Preventing war!
What is this idiot thinking? OF COURSE Israel could retake parts of Gaza. Israel could retake the whole friggen thing in a weekend if they wanted to be brutal enough. What's Mr. Obvious's point here, aside from seriously pissing off Hamas in Gaza City??? I mean Gaza is a little territory, Israel is a mighty NATION. This is not a comparison. What a total moron.
Of course, the other possibility is worse and he isn't a moron but trying to get Hamas to provoke a new fight out of Gaza.
