Israeli Strike in Gaza Kills a Hamas Leader and Fouteeen Others
This story and the followup
has made the front page of the Times two days running. My quick survey of the blogosphere showed very little reaction at all. The Oooold Crow gave us :
"One more terrorist
is taking the eternal celestial dirtnap.
Henry Hanks // 11:42 AM"
This doesn't seem to fully explore the issues, although there is a "reap what you sow" attitude implied here that I can get behind. However, my "thought-through" reaction is that of Michael Pine
, if I were thinking and writing clearly, and who has the time?
My only quibble with the Pine piece? He closes with "The Israeli government continues to think tactically, rather than strategically..."
. I do not think (and I suspect Mr. Pine does not think) that the Israeli governnment is monolithic on the subject of how best to deal with Hamas, and offer this article
UPDATE: OK, I lack patience. The blogosphere is now humming with this. Instapundit
provides links to Alterman, the Bear, and many others.
