Do Your Job Or Sit Down!
We have yet to hear the precise objective of Operation Cast Lead from our leaders. Clearly it is not to destroy Hamas. As usual, the lemmings in government are playing politics. We can hear them arguing and quibbling over certain nuances of how to proceed, but the differences are minimal. While Jews bleed on the battlefield, these smallest of the small bow to the altar of the United Nazis and "international diplomacy". They speak of "possible' and "potential ceasefires", "tangible ceasefires", "sustainable ceasefires", and "reasonable ceasefires". Hamas knows all about such ceasefires. They know that one-sided lulls in fighting are a great time to restock. Similarly, lulls in fighting so that "humanitarian trucks" can be let in, are also a great time to restock even as they continue to shoot rockets into Israel.
What about annihilation? Doesn't the common man/woman in Israel want to see the death of every Hamas terrorist (and for that matter, Fatah terrorist, Hezbollah terrorist, and whatever other groups these vipers join). How about destroying Hamas as any sort of entity. I mean really destroying them. Not mere rhetoric or sloganeering. Fire cleans everything if the flame is hot enough.
Any failure to destroy this most barbaric of enemies guarantees that we will see them again. Their blood lust never wanes. And next time they will be stronger. Carpe diem, dammit! It is time to seize the moment now that the rodents are on their heels. Kill or be Killed! Anything less than the brutal and total rule of Halachic warfare, guarantees the shedding of Jewish blood in the future. We can prevent so many needless funerals. Do you want to hear the wailing of Jewish mothers as their loved ones are lowered inot the ground? I don't.
I know it's a pipe dream. Neither Ehud (either one of them) nor Livni are suddenly going to become baalei t'shuvah. Prepare yourself for the disappointment. At the end of the day, whatever success the military has, will be minimal. Hamas will easily replenish its arsenal of rockets and of lunatics willing to blow themselves up. Hamas will live because stupid Jews never ever learn. Neither do the stupid Jews who elect them in the first place and will reelect them the next time around. We have seen this nightmare before.
Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. Where are the Jewish men?
