    i'd say it's a small deal and you are a moron for posting your thoughts on it being a big deal

    not if you knew rahtotheames recent history of belittling posters with differing opinions then his own.

    Re: Israel strikes Gaza

    Don't really see the point in bashing an unrelated post, even if it is the same poster.

    This always has the potential to be a really big deal and escalate dramatically, or it could turn into nothing. I haven't heard a lot of news on this lately, so I am not sure if this is in response to something in particular or not. It certainly bears watching.

    Well a 6 week truce just recently ended, and this attack is basically out of nowhere. Hamas has been firing missiles at Israel, but they really haven't caused much damage or casualties.

    This, combined with the India-Pakistan conflict going on... could be bad. Especially if Egypt joined with Israel and a large country backed Gaza. Plus if Iran somehow gets tied into this, it will get messy.

    Right now its just a wait and see...

    Yeah hama is just firing missles at them. But because they keep missing they should be ignored?

    Honestly I suprised that Israel is still trying to make this work. Because the people that lead Hamas either have no control over their people or the simply don't care.

    Re: Israel strikes Gaza

    Hamas is pretty much tried to pick a fight after the elections. The Israeli elections are 10 Feb and they may think this helps their vote to stay in power. With Hamas fracas lighting up, maybe they do not attack Iran next month. Then the Arabs would be mad and the price of oil might spike. So it may affect people in the end depending on how it plays out. Merry XMAS.

    Hahahaha ok, I worded that slightly wrong. What Israel did is like taking a shotgun to a paintball gun war.

    Re: Israel strikes Gaza

    Is this a big deal the way the Russian attack was on that country? I sure remember talking about WW 3 starting after that. Relax people, they have been warring for 1000's of years and will do so as long as the planet remains.

    Re: Israel strikes Gaza

    that may be true, but as you said Israel did not start the firing of the rockets.

    I see the only way this can ever end peacefully is the people of Palistien need to over throw Hamas, because I know they are not all bad people there.

    This is the only way I can see peace coming in the end.

    The people need to get fed up with it and say we hate living in terror. They have lived in peace before and enjoyed it and would like it to continue. And until terrorist version is no longer around that will not happen.

    Re: Israel strikes Gaza

    These attacks are not that big of a deal. Anytime Hamas, or any other Palestinian terrorist organization launches attacks on Israel, Israel strikes back with massive air strikes. This has been going on for decades and just b/c they were in a cease fire truce doesn't mean anything. It seems that anytime Hamas asks for a truce it is b/c they are short on supplies and need to regroup as an organization, then once they are ready, they strike and start this whole process all over again with Israel.

    Funny how that works, isn't it?
