What do the Israelis think the endgame of this is going to be? They go in and kill enough people, blow enough shit up, and the Gazans are going to settle down? That hasn't worked too well in the past. The troubles keep returning.

There are 1.4 million people in Gaza. After their water, sewage and electrical systems have been blown all to hell, are a million people going to survive by shitting in plastic bags and drinking ditch water in the dark? It was a crap place to begin with, and is turning it into crap squared going to bring peace?

Or will it bring epidemics of cholera or malnutrition or just people dying of any little ailment, as the Israelis dick around with relief supplies of medicine? Do they think the Palestinians will walk across the Egyptian border en masse and ask for sanctuary? Yeah, that's what they need, a NEW refugee camp!

How many deaths will it take before the world -- especially the U.S. news media -- starts calling the Israelis "genociders"? I estimate at least a million. And I fear it will come to that. With an already squalid ghetto-by-the-Med now being reduced to more squalor, and a maniacal Hamas intent on getting martyrdom status for its people, there's going to be a lot of dead bodies on the pile before this is over.

It cannot help but end badly -- like everything in the Bush Universe.
