Except, as I loving said in that part you just quoted, they are failing at both western ideals/samurai honour/whatever and tribal thunderdome warfare. Israel is neither gaining the moral high ground, nor wholesale removing the palestinians. Either they go full out reconciliation, or full on takeover and ouster. loving around in some imaginary middle ground where you kill enough palestinians to ensure they will all hate you and want to launch more rockets, but not enough that you actually stop them from firing said rockets, gets you loving nowhere but deeper into the quagmire.

They are doing it, and will do it, for as long as it takes Hamas to gently caress up and take out the wrong target. And by gently caress up I mean actually learn to aim. And by take out the wrong target I mean hit what they are actually aiming for. As soon as Hamas gives Israel something they can waive in front of the UN, then it will be full on burn it to the ground and salt the earth. Its politics.

And its actually pretty smart given the state of affairs. Lets face it, if MH-17 was an Israeli Airliner taken down by a Hamas rocket, Gaza would be a smoking crater. And the best you would get in the form of objection outside of Iran is a bunch of UN diplomats trying to look the other way as they shuffle their feet when asked about it. Cause a quagmire, draw out the extremists, and wait for them to screw the pooch.

Come on. Its not that god drat hard to understand. There is literally no other reason a country with the mentality and advantage of Israel to half rear end around like they are. The land of the Jews isn't full of pearl clutching fuckwits who yank around the leadership because of :qq: humanitarianism :qq:. As violent and ridged as the government views the Palestinians, they know its not near as malevolent as their citizens. The government actually gives a half a poo poo about international opinion.

From a strategic point of view the IDF needs to start fighting the long war, and it looks like they've finally started to get their poo poo together.

You keep the power and water off in Gaza long enough, and you won't need to bomb the skittering little rocket loving shits, there just isn't enough of anything other than Takbirs and Allah Allah Oxenfree's to live on once you collapse the smuggling tunnels, turn off the lights, and kill the water supply.

And ya know what? gently caress 'em. We made it 40 years walking through what became the kingdom of Saud most likey, with even less than that. If this foray into the darker days of mans recent past is what finally brings the joke we all call Palestinians, and god willing Islam, to an end, then they weren't chosen for a loving reason and it all works out.

I mean seriously, it looks like the IDF is gonna go balls out on the Siege warfare here, and I love it. You and your people want to spend time in the shops lamenting how you want to send bubby and her frugal offspring into the sea? Well guess what, we've got you little primitive shits backed up to the water, with nowhere to go. And there's been enough protection money spread around the world that we can literally do whatever the gently caress we want with little to no repercussions to your joke of a people and culture.

The Israeli political base is more fired up than the reddest county in America post 9/11. And they've been that way for a long goddamn time, and it's only growing. We're going to live to see the Jews commit a holocaust, and irony will die it's final death with the last goddamn PLO members gasp of Zyklon B.

I have a difficult time calling it IS, rather than ISIS. I mean, c'mon guys, take some territory outside Iraq and Syria then we'll talk about rebranding.

They really should have gone with just The Caliphate. Has a better ring to it that generic Islamic State.

Here's hoping they actually manage to bulldoze into Mecca and Cairo, unite the sunnis, and we get a final no-poo poo showdown over who gets to be top semite. I'd be ok with having to bike everywhere for a few years until haliburton robots get the irradiated refineries back up :allears:

Realtalk Israel would probably have an easier go in the long run by just buying Hamas out, co-opting them and turning them into its puppets like it did with the PLO. Grease the palms of the leaders with the gas money you lifted from their shores, let them cling to their annihilationist rhetoric, and then let them rule over Gaza with an iron fist while you cram the West Bank full of Hasidic toddler cannons. That's what we did in Iraq (sans the toddler cannons) and it got the Sunnis to play nice as long as the checks were rolling in. Course, once we handed it over to Maliki the checks stopped, and now look what we've got.
