I just about pissed myself laughing at this story. So, those reports that Israel was sending the troops into Gaza? A complete fabrication.
What they really did:
The Israeli military apparently used a brilliant deceptive maneuver to take out Hamas's terrorist fighting force and underground tunnels -- in a single blow.I will waste no tears on Hamas. They're evil and they're commies. (Why else do you think that the American left loves the Palestinian cause so much?)
In what could only be described as killing two birds with one stone, the Israel Defense Forces on Thursday night told news reporters that the Israeli ground forces were on their way to Hamas-held Gaza.
The news spread quickly through the mainstream media and affiliated social media accounts. Believing an Israeli ground invasion to be imminent, Hamas ordered its terrorist fighters to seek shelter in the tunnel network dug up under the Gaza city.
What followed the Hamas mobilization was a massive wave of Israeli airstrikes -- comprising of 160 aircraft -- on the Gaza tunnel network with the jihadi group's top terror brass sitting underground, right where the IDF wanted them.
The best part of it all is that the press played right into their hands. The international media are decidedly on Hamas' side in this shit festival, and I bet the press couldn't wait to go into Gaza in the wake of the attack, with cameras rolling so they could broadcast all kinds of pro-Hamas propaganda to the world, every shot and every word carefully selected to make Israel look as bad as possible.
"This poor old man lost his leg to an Isralei grenade," they'd say, gravely intoning the words as the camera panned over a man who lost his leg in 1978 but which has a fresh bandage applied to it. And on and on and on, like the guy who was using crutches until shooting started and he miraculously recovered instantly and sprinted away, carrying his crutches.
...and instead of doing that, Israel just bombed the network of terrorist tunnels, from the air, using precision munitions.
That's the thing, you see: Hamas fires missiles with approximately zero guidance system, and wherever they land is who gets to have a bad day today...and they're firing those missiles into a civilian population. The idea isn't to strike military targets, but to kill as many people as possible regardless of who they are.
The pro-islamic terror faction in the house of representatives has once again "removed all doubt" by talking about how Israel's response was "not proportionate".
Myself, I agree with the blogger:
Proportional response is bullshit.These people are savages who only understand one language. When they hit you, you have to annihilate them in detail so they will get the message, If you fuck with me, I will kill you.
An enemy could be confident in attacking you with a idea of how much they are willing to sacrifice to your proportional response to achieve their goals.
No, you kick the fucking shit out of your enemy so hard the very thought of fighting you ever again makes piss run down their legs.
The right response to thousands of Hamas rockets is Gaza should be glassed so intensely that the 1950 Armistice Line becomes beach front property.
Then they won't fuck with you. Either because they piss themselves at the thought of fucking with you, or because they're six feet under and can't.
Some more detail on the Israeli response to Hamas' unwarranted attack. Here's the thing: if your enemy knows where your hidey holes are, and has laser-guided bombs, you're probably going to have a bad day if they ever decide to hit them.
Well, couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch.

Scroll down to the bit about the sidewalks of Northwestern University being "too white". I've got a fiver which says that the "white people" who were refusing to let him pass on the sidewalk were, in fact, women.
Campus lesbians have a stupid power game they play, where they walk on a sidewalk, take up the whole thing, link arms, and make no room for men. The point of the game is to make the man step aside--off the pavement, if possible--to show how "strong" and "empowered" you are. I had a crazy bitch do that to me one time, except I didn't know what the hell she was doing and thought she was just some kind of lunatic.
This happened on a city street (downtown Chicago) and I was trying to cross, only this moron and her girlfriend got in my way. When I see that a person's path is going to intersect mine I will maneuver to avoid it, only she steered herself and her friend right into my path, staring at me the entire time. It's like, hello shithead, I am already maneuvering to go around you, but that wasn't enough; she had to make me dodge them. If you don't dodge and run into them, then there's a bunch of complaining and accusations and a bunch of other stupid shit. I was working, didn't have time for nonsense, and didn't know what was going on, so after I was safely past them my only thought was, "Holy shit, what the hell was her problem?" Well, her problem was that she was a radical lesbian feminist, that's what, and by now I expect she's probably living in a hovel with 54 cats and complaining daily about how "the patriarchy" is still oppressing her.
I'll be that's what was going on here, only the black guy thought that white campus girls acting like shitheads was racism, because of course he did.
Myself, I never had time for that stupid crap. I was working my way through college. The feminazi types just get daddy to pay for it, all the way bitching and moaning about how oppressed they are.

Anyway, it's Friday. We have that much going for us.
It's supposed to rain all next week, so I cut the grass after getting home from work. I didn't bother with the pusher, I just got on the tractor and did everything. I still want to clean the pusher's carb. Besides, I did the yard with the pusher a scant five days ago (Monday) and didn't feel like doing that again.
