#1 Simple solution -->> Stop calling ahead.

#2 Either that, or consider the human shields as co-conspirators and just bomb it regardless!

After all, they boldly proclaim that they crave martyrdom - it's cruel not to help accomodate 'em.

#3 If it's no big deal, give 'em what they want and make 'em happy!

BTW: If it's such a death cult, why do they get all PO'd every time one of them gets martyred? I still haven't figured that out.

#4 Going to have to stop calling ahead. This "rally round the house" will now happen every time.

Call after the strike. Just to see who picks up and have another go at them.

#7 Ohh, the Horror!!! The 'Arab Street' can't wait to pipe the kiddies and women charred to death holding hands around the home! And brought to us via 5.1 sound and rich 3d color, into our living rooms!

#8 It's the timing thing Gorb.

#9 How churlish of the IAF to deny all of these martyrs their wish. Next time, make their dreams come true. A few more repeats and people will be much less eager to cluster up at target locations. All Israel gets in treturn for their restraint is more Qassam rockets launched at them. What part of this equation do they not understand?

#10 I have a semi-bright idea: find two hamas bigs that live within sight of each other. Call #1, and let them know the IAF is coming so they can build the Ring of Martyrs™, then completely obliterate #2's home with no warning, but withing sight of the ROM. Sends a nice message

#11 Hey, Frank G, that's a purdy good idea! Kill one or two, but educate tens or even hundreds! Do it, for the Children(Tm), education is their future!

#12 Is this all that difficult? Announce a strike on house A, strike house B.

#13 This is why the Slammers might win - they understand how to weaponize our own decency against us. To win against Islam, we will have to become a vicious as they are - communicate in a language they will understand.

#14 SR-71 - can't argue that

#15 Mighty considerate of them to concentrate at the target point. Obviates the need to hunt them down individually.

#16 From Fjordman's "Suggestions for Solutions". (Just in case you haven't read it, SR-71).
Writer Raymond Kraft explains Western softness very well: The Islamic movement “has turned the civility of the United States and Europe into a weapon and turned it against us. It has weaponized niceness, it has weaponized compassion, it has weaponized the fundamental decency of Western Civilization. We have become too civilized to defeat our enemies, perhaps too civilized to survive.”

#17 It has weaponised civilians i.e. turned them into military targets.

If Israel gets hit bad, I hope they know what to do...

#18 If Israel gets hit bad, there won't be anything habitable left. I have no doubt they have an automatic full release response for attacks from certain quarters - and will be instantly fed confirming satellite info. Somehow I do not believe the hand-wringers - it will not get to that point... But I'm obviously in the minority in that belief.

#19 I'd expect Tehran, Qom, Medina, Damascus, Riyadh, et al to be uninhabitable for a loooong time. Let the moon-worshippers get REM's. Nice to wear a film tag to your death cult alter

#20 What is funny is the use of "human shields" is a war crime and you are permitted to hit the target anyhow. Yet the BBC and MSM make these paleo thugs and war criminals out to be freaking heros.

Time to go to work on the enimies in our midst, those who work for the MSM. As long as we allow their lies and spin to continue we are defeating our selves.

#21 If you are worried about the human shield casualties, you don't have to use a 500# bomb. A 2000# bomb should get most of them.
