Enough with the whining

I think people have forgotten what “war” means. If the ratio had been the other way around, Palestinians would have been celebrating instead of whining. Maybe it’s just me, but I thought war was all about killing as many of the other guys as possible, and losing as few of your own as you can possibly manage.

If Israel’s policy was to kill as many Palestinians as possible, they would have carpet-bombed Gaza City (like the U.S. did in Dresden and Tokyo. Talk about civilian casualties? Look at hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths, with dubious military tactical purpose. Civilian casualties in war is a huge topic, and, OMG, it didn’t start with the Palestinians and Israelis. GASP! No, you don’t say!? )

Get real. Theatrical whining is so pointless. This is what Nietszche called “ressentiment”. (shall we say that the Palestinians learned it from the Jews?)
