Modern War

What you see unfolding in Gaza is what's often referred to as "4th Generation Warfare" . The idea is simple -- war is waged at a strategic level by aiming at political will, rather than success on the battlefield. Hamas is really, really good at it. If I were Hamas, I'd make sure all my guys carried a doll or teddy bear to throw on the rubble of any missile strike before the media arrived. They're making public wailing into an art form.

The frustrating thing is that the media takes it all hook, line, and sinker, and refuses to consider that it's being duped into being employed as a weapon of warfare. CNN ran the attached video until people pointed out that it was Theater of Jihad run by a pro-Hamas Norwegian doctor famous for propaganda. You don't have to be a doctor to note that the CPR chest compressions are absolutely wrong, there's no ventilation going on, and that this obviously isn't a genuine attempt to revive anyone.

The criticism towards Israel defending itself is insane.

What idiot dreamed up the idea of "measured response" to attacks?

The idea of war is to make the enemy surrender or anihilate them.

Israel is not the aggressor - Palenstine has brought this on themeselves.

I couldn't agree more.

Hamas fires rockets at Israeli's and promotes suicide bombings.

Israel retaliates and people throughout the world protest.

It's like someone being punched in the nose and asking them to only throw one punch back. Or telling them they should simply walk away without giving them the butt whoopin' they deserve.

I support Israel doing whatever it takes to eliminate the threat.

Why is this so clear to us, but not to others? How did we get wired this way and they wired their way to see things so differently? Think

This may have something to do with it. This is Hamas children's TV. Note the eerie similarity to Nahoul's death in the opening sequence and the video of the 12 year old in the hospital.

The rank and file American public has no idea how depraved these people are, or the depths they'll go to.

Not quite sure I understand your point - are you suggesting that Israel is doing something wrong and that is causing Hamas to fire rockets at them?

Depraved is the correct way to describe that video.

Hatred is ugly no matter the suit it wears. Teaching children to hate is even uglier.

Israel has not shot at UN peace keepers. I gave you the benefit of the doubt when I asked if you were blaming Israel for this conflict, but not it is obvious that you are blaming them.

How can any reasonble person who keeps up with current events blame Israel? Hamas hates Israel simply because they are Jews. They have vowed to destroy them and have bombed them. Israel is simply defending itself.

What is wrong is your view on the situation.
