Israel invades gaza.. again...

I wish Israel would develop a more sensible strategy as opposed to just invading every time it got upset.
Clearly Israel is in a position where if it's honor is insulted (e.g. if a soldier is kidnapped) the politicians must react with force blow up a few bridges and probably end up killing some terrorists and maybe some collateral damage.

The problem with this is that even just considering Israel’s interests alone, decisions should be made on a consequentialist basis not a knee-jerk one. They need to be able to not invade if it is a bad time to do it (which I personally think is almost all the time - but that is up for some debate).

As with most democratic politics however we just have one group of gun toting hawks and one group of doves.. not a group of people thinking sensibly.
