@TruthSandwich @mcnado At the end of the day I guess it’s Israel’s decision how they want to attack Hamas but it is a decision, their hands aren’t tied, they’ve got options. I have to believe if they wanted to that they could kill fewer civilians but they have chosen not to.

That may be the right military solution, it’s not clear to me that it is and from a great distance I don’t know that Israel actually knows what it’s doing. It’s hard to tell if there’s a strategy here or just blind anger.

I also find it hard to believe that they’re going to be able to kill their way to peace, they will presumably be able to degrade Hamas and maybe that’ll be enough but I’m not optimistic that we won’t be seeing this all again in a few years.

That being said, I know I’m all over the place here. I’m thinking in print, I’m reacting to my own experiences and guilt at being part of a different pointless war.
