http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a5xWbP5DENG0&refer=home It's a very simple operation. Kill all militants, and destroy the network of tunnels. A decisive Israeli victory should assure peace in the region, as Hamas will continue to poke and prod a de-facto regional superpower. They're going to get what they have coming to them. Hamas and it's militants are cowards hiding among the innocent. This kind of neo-nazi fascism will be wiped from the region in the next several weeks. Stopping now, militarily speaking, would be a mistake. Calls for ceasefire are misinformed at best. No peace treaty could ever stop Hamas from attacking Israel. While I do acknowledge it's unfortunate for it to come to this, I believe it will be for Israel's ultimate benefit to crush them out of this region. Do what you have to do, Israel.
