I thought this might happen(my other thread) I don't think there was much other choice for Israel at this point. The bombing wasn't effective, the missiles kept coming. I hope things work out better for them than for the US in Iraq or Afganistan. I am not very optimistic though.

I hope the higher ups have a good post-military strategy to capitalize on the upcoming sacrifice of life. The mission statement as read on TV had thesame vagueness to it that left the US with little to show for its efforts in Iraq/Afganistan.

May G-d keep the soldiers safe.

I should think you'd want God to keep everyone safe, and end the strife.

Yes, but sadly the operations are necessary for peace. We do our part and G-d does His.

Part of the reason that they went in was because of the tunnels/recent incursion - bombing wont do a darn thing about them.

BTW, I always wonder why Egypt gets a free pass on the whole "Gaza is a effectively a hostage" meme - both Israel and Egypt have closed the borders.
