Proportionate response

There are those decrying the current Israeli response to the Hamas and Hizbollah as being ‘disproportionate.’ Idiots. This is not a game. Israel’s goal is not tit-for-tat — its goal is to make life miserable enough for the other side that they will bend to the will of Israel — meaning return the soldiers, and cease hostilities. If Hamas and Hizbollah do not bend, then I pray that Israel continue to add heat to the kettle. The miserable status quo of unending forays and raids and rocket fire and shelling and bombing and hostage taking and suicide bombings and such will end not by carefully measured proportionate responses. It will end when one side destroys the will, and/or means, of the other to fight. Go Israel! Turn the clock back.
