You’re absolutely right. Though what’s belief worth if it isn’t still hard to think of frying children.
Try to imagine American politicians that are attacked every day minding their own business and the restraint Israel has shown. No US pol could survive if they didn't eventually wipe them off the map.
Iraq would have been over a long time ago if we lined the bastids up against a wall and started shooting until someone named some names. Now we have the name( Mookie Sadr), and he still breathes. If we don't kill him and his followers, the 3500 dead will mean nothing when we turn Iraq over to the Iranians. When we publicly shoot Sadr, we need to shoot every bastard that even coughs when we feed his carcass to the swine. That is called "pacification".
Just remember, if you don’t fry theirs and stop them they will surely fry you and yours.
