Israel vs. Hamas

In an ideal world, if Hamas fired rockets into Israel, the perpetrators would be arrested and tried for terrorism. Israel would not be justified in firing rockets into Gaza killing more people than Hamas killed.

In the real world however, there is no one to arrest the terrorists. So what can Israel do? Just sit by with rockets raining down while the rest of the world goes, “Hamas, now stop doing that. I said stop doing that. Don’t make me count to three. One. One and one-half. One and three-fifths.” Of course now that Israel is firing missiles at Hamas the world is going, “Israel, now stop doing that. I said stop doing that. Don’t make me count to three. One. One and one-half. One and three-fifths.”

It’s times like this I wish there was someone who could slap all the parties involved and tell them to either learn to live together or kill each other off so the rest of the world will no longer have to put up with their shit. In the majority of cases I don’t think killing people is a solution, but there are … brief periods of time when I think the latter would be nice. Can you picture a world where there wasn’t a war brewing every other month in the Middle East?
