Barrage of rockets hits Southern Israel as violence flares up
(Haaretz 1 hour ago)
I am now waiting for a revised definition of calm!
We appear to be in the position of frantically ignoring the “elephant in the room”!
Our defense analysts – and it seems,sadly, our political and military leaders – now interpret Hamas pissing on us as a light shower of summer rain.
What else do they have to do to capture our attention?
Enough already! The world attitude to our actions is fixed – irrespective of what those actions are.
Since no response will be considered “proportionate”- might as well go all the way.
True deterrence is the name of the game.
“Pretty please”doesn’t work any more!
Andyboy – telling it as it is!
