Kind of like hurricane season here. Fill the cupboards with shelf-stable groceries and never have more than $50 worth of perishables in the freezer until after November 30th.<quoted text>
Whilst America and probably most other countries in the world would get away with carpet bombing when necessary Israeli cannot even cause one instance of multiple casualties before the majority abroad are calling for a cessation of military activity.
I do not believe that the civilians in Gaza have a choice whether their property is used as storage. And its in Hamas interest to cause as many casualties on their own side as possible to blame Israel.
BBC have already been caught this time showing fake footage of a dead man who is mysteriously resurrected minutes later. Pallywood is back for another round.
Here is the problem eventually at some point Israel will have to enter Gaza to stop the missiles and the longer it takes the more advanced Hamas IJ and co become. Also better to fight on our terms than theirs especially if Iran conflict grows.
They apparently now have, anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, tunnels throughout the land, long range missiles, may have increased distance of kassams to reach Jerusalem and parts of the West Bank. not to mention all the extra tools and training received from Iran and Hizballah.
Only time shall tell but not in the mood for war especially during the winter. Emergency supplies here we come.
I decided I'm going with Iran, the atomic candlestick, in the library.
The Persians can't afford to lose their stepping stone to Israel and their (figurative) ship in Syria is taking on water. There is no easier way for them to distract the Arab world than with an Israeli/Palestinian crisis. All they needed was for Israel to whack a few civilians and the volume automatically goes up in the Ummah.
Meanwhile, do you know where your WMD's are Mr. Assad? It's classic sleight of hand. I picture Hamas agreeing to take one for the team in exchange for some future favors from Iran and an uninterrupted supply of larger rockets for them to torment you.
