I'm sort of at a point of numbness with events in the Middle East. Both sides violated the cease fire multiple time. And the cease-fire agreement ended Dec 16th (I think it was the 16th...), but I just have to wonder what Hamas was thinking. You keep firing rockets at Isreal, and you know there are going to eventually hit you back, hard.
I am disappointed that all the news of the military action is all coming from one side. which leaves much great chance of the one side controlling the story to engage in acts of brutality against civilians. It's impossible to have a "clean war", but when you have independent reporting covering it from the ground, you are far more likely to see the sides involved try to keep their forces in check and not allow atrocities.
Anyway, the silence has been kind of deafening and it seemed kind of odd given how vocal my friends list has been in the past concerning military actions around the world.
