    WRONG.

    The atom bombs dropped on Japan were substantially weaker and less destructive than the current nuclear weapons.

    There is a VAST difference.

    They are still both nuclear.

    I didn't argue that they were just as destructive. They ARE nuclear though. This is basic science...fission and fusion are both nuclear processes. I'm not going to debate a basic fact with you.

    Besides, you're splitting hairs and ignoring the content of what I wrote. Call them whatever kind of bombs you like, my point still stands.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
    What?

    So, forget who was naughty first. Hamas launches rockets at Israel.

    If military retaliation is not the correct response, then what is?
    I`m OK with the proposed 30 to 1 ratio of rockets ,Israel over Hamas. When I think about the carnage I do shudder. WE aparently will have to beat many ,in the world of Islam,into submissiion. That sucks ,but as they persist....

    I think the proper response to Hamas rockets is the total destruction of Hamas and for Israel to take over Gaza and rule it. Then the people will be better off and Israel will never have to fight another terrorist government that rules in Gaza. Simple.

    ...civilian structures,hospitals,schools,malls,apartment buildings,other multi-family structures,shelters,more hopitals,more schools,their own homes. Cardinal,they just don`t,(and won`t) ever get it. Interesting point here,"some very fine western government", has provided Israel with state of the art technology for instant targeting of terrorist missile launch locations to increase the rate of kill of the launcher,terrorist ,and additional rockets,in an attempt to reduce collateral damage unless the collateral is on and the same as the launch site.In the event of collateral and terrorist launch site being one and the same ,the Israeli army will have to enter Gaza to get the,"good loveing muslims",without harm to inocents.

    Accepting one of the various olive-branches offered to Israel, rather than rejecting out of hand any that doesn't include the complete removal of Islam from the Promised Land would work. The problem is that Israel is a power-house in that part of the world, mostly because we (the most powerful country in the world) support them.
