***But it appears the truce was not a pleasing outcome to a group of battle-hungry Israeli soldiers which wanted to carry on the fighting and invade the Gaza Strip.***

Mr. Watson seems to try to make it sound that these Iraelis are just blood-thirsty neandrathals like their Pali counterparts. This is, of course, not true. They’ve simply had enough of war and want to put a stop to it once and for all.

I also am disappointed that Netanyahu won’t finish the b@$t@rds off, and I’m far from a war monger.

Yeah, I understand the frustrations of these guys, but I can also understand Bibi’s situation. If he had invaded Gaza (might still happen, we’ll see how long this ceasefire lasts), Egypt would have been a genuine concern in the years to come. He has enough to worry about with Iran.
I think this conflict may have just been a test of the Iron Dome the more I look at it. It works great, and if an attack on Iran happens, Israel will invade Gaza preemptively, so it will have to deal with rocket attacks there and then.

Were the rumors about Obama’s Sinai troop deployment deal true?
