Israel and Restraint

I've noticed several calls for Israel to exercise restraint. Well, I've got news for you geniuses. If Israel did not exercise restraint each and every day, there wouldn't be a single Palestinian left to launch Kassams at Sderot, or anywhere else. You think Israel couldn't wipe out every one of them in one night?

I am reminded of this passage from Lord of the Rings, though:
'When have I been hasty or unwary, who have waited and prepared for so many long years?' said Aragorn.

'Never yet. Do not then stumble at the end of the road,' answered Gandalf.
I suppose that could be the context in which at least some of these calls are meant, but it still comes off as a bit sanctimonious.

True, very true.

Considering the Palistinian death toll so far (it's been, what?, three or four people so far?), the Israelis should get a prize. They are very restrained.

Oh, your average terrorist attack takes out more people than all of Israel's acts during Operation Summer Rains. No one's asking the Palestinians to be restrained.

I know. That's what gets me. The Palestinians come out and openly claim they have and have used chemical weapons. Was there a single word of reproach from anyone? No.

It makes me so mad.

Thing is, they have to tell people that they're using it. Either they're bluffing or bragging. What a bunch of morons. Another point, Qassam rockets, do they have a guidance system? OK, that's a rhetorical question, obviously they don't have one. In order to deploy, they just set up the launcher, point 'em in the general direction of Israel, launch and run. Indiscriminate, but nobody cares. Israel told residents living in the area that they intend to strike to evacuate within 48 hrs. still deemed to be inhumane.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Color me depressed/angry/confused.

Icepick the Mad!
