"Even you should know that, in war, the mere fact that one has been attacked (and you should realise that there are a number of grounds for saying that the "attacks" on Israel are justifiable self-defence) does not entitle one to be "as nasty as one likes"." - Richard Bridge

You are obviously one of the fools that thinks that in war there are rules? If you were ever to find yourself in a situation where you are fighting for your very life then you appreciate one truth and the existence of only one rule - WIN.

Best put by Admiral Jackie Fisher in what he referred to as his 3 "R's" of war - Ruthless, Relentless, Remorseless.

Or - "The essence of war IS violence. Moderation in war is imbecility: Hit first; Hit hard; Keep on hitting."

By the way decimate does not mean extermination, it does even mean wipe out, to decimate means to reduce by one tenth.

In refusing to extend the ceasefire in Gaza, Hamas, in the eyes of the world have just thrown away any PR advantage they ever thought that they had won - they will be seen for exactly what they are.
