Reading the opening paragraphs to the story, it simply boggles the mind, in the sense in which Meshal. the Hamas leader is so deluded, so convoluted, goading,antagonizing Israel to invade, attack as if it were simply a matter of two bullies daring each other in the school yard, the worst outcome might be a bloody nose. Yet he takes brinkmanship beyond suicidal, daring one of the best, well-equipped armies to blow things up to Kingdom Come. Let them. I wonder, if Meshal survives, probably now will, with Hamas begging for a ceasefire, if he ever dares Israel to ever invade again.

Why are there no war games, as far as I can tell, about the Korean war?

Aw, that's just too perfect! Remember the hot new industry in Egypt after the '67 War? (Backup lights for Egyptian tanks.) Wonder what it will be for Hamas?

yep sand man insane and old bob were telling the world all about how powerful they were. It took us awhile to assemble the manpower and logistical support necessary to stomp them into the sand and they talked crap all the time we were getting ready. Where are then now??????

Why invade??? Don’t take the bait. Keep bombing. The air force needs the target practice.

Isn't this like the guy with the knife daring the guy with the gun to shoot him in the "bringing a knife to a gun fight" scenario?

Muslims are soooooooo dumb.

There is no such thing as an innocent civilian Palestinian. They are ALL either fighters or supporters of the terrorists.

......a total of 102 people had been killed.....

That is far short of the 102,000 necessary to resolve the issue and get Hamas’s attention

According to muslim 0bama, dog is a bit tough........

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”

This passage explains a lot. It appears 0bama must have ate a lot of meat from retarded donkeys........because he took on the powers of a jackass.

I think it also sums up Hamas pretty good too.
