    Tell you what:
    You go ahead and keep creating excuses for terrorists.
    One of these days, you'll be directly affected by them, and have no one to blame but yourself.
    Not that you'll actually DO that, but...

    Hamas have been in breach of the cease fire agreement, several times....

    And even if Hamas were retaliating to Israeli aggression, Hamas use of Katusha rockets shows a complete disregard for civilians and is in breach of the rules of war.

    Suicide bombing yes, rockets, No.

    Somaliland drew itself out of civil war and when Somaliland had control after Somalia killed 50, 000 of my people. Did Somaliland react using weapons? No. We didn't go for revenge which is what makes us better than them so yes, i can safely say military actions would most likely be drawn after every other diplomatic means is used.

    As i said, you cannot compare what is happening in Israel to Somaliland.
    The difference is too big historically.

    Somaliland sure, is surrounded by countries who hate it. Including Arab countries. But Somalis do not want Somalilanders to die, just rejoin with Somalia.

    The entire topic is about Israel

    Both Israel and Hamas broke the ceasefire numerous times during the 6month period.

    Sgt Rock was not, and did not ask you to make a comparison, he was asking you to engage in a hypothetical. That was designed to engage your philosophical outlook on a nation's right to defend itself. Therefore, your semantics in regards to the factual realities of Somali/Somaliland completely miss what Sgt Rock was trying to ask....

    No.
    Somaliland will not and should never react by killing people if rockets fell on Somaliland.

    I don't care how many rockets, you do not react by dropping bombs on them to stop it. Somaliland should stop it but not by the same means.

    I understand that, but you were asked a hypothetical, which by virtue is removed from the factual and is premised on the POSSIBLE.

    So I will ask this philosophical question of you. Should a nation be able to use military force to retaliate against acts of aggression that were in breach of a ceasefire?

    oh what a convincing argument: "you are wrong because they are from the other side"

    tell you what: I don't create excuses for Hamas, I explain that Israel is as wrong as them.

    Interesting report, in that Israel fire designed to drive people away from the border fence is classed as a 'violation' whereas Hamas rocket fire into Israel is ignored.
