    Do NOT stop now! Keep destroying missiles and plants until they sue for peace. They have not been reduced in strength enough. Make them sue for peace…Israel should no be looking to back out easily and voluntarily. It has more work to do.

    Another example of a wrist slap and a desire to stop will not advance Israeli freedom or existence.

    If you need help, this older gentleman will happily come over to fight…but not to become a sitting duck who government has given up the right to respond in any way it sees fit to deadly enemy provocations.
