You realize that the effect of your argument is only to make them demand more violence, and fewer restraints? Just as the solution to Vietnam was we didn't use enough violence?Originally posted by: ayabe
Yet amazingly despite some brutal beat downs at the hands of the Israeli's, the terrorists aren't really losing any ground.Originally posted by: Jaskalas
It can be applied to the Palestinians, but anyone who wages war against us MUST have war waged against them. They must be forced into surrendering so that they end their violence against us.Originally posted by: ayabe
Giving Israel the moral high ground 100% of the time just makes me cringe.
If the Israeli's consider terrorism a means to an end when fighting for what they believe, then the same test must be applied to the Palestinians.
Despite Israel killing ~3.4 Palestinians for every Israeli killed in a terror attack(It's greater than 5 to 1 if you look at children killed), they just keep coming.
Do they just need to up their game? Or is perhaps killing innocents not the best way to combat terror?
Either way, what they're rolling with isn't getting the job done.
There are people who only have a hammer, and everything looks like a nail to them. They know 'use the US military to kill anyone causing a problem', and that's about it.
Not working? Must be something preventing the military from doing enough killing, some hippies or liberals or something.
