More missiles on southern Israel

On my way to work this morning I got a call from my office telling me that a Grad Ketyusha rocket had landed in Beer Sheva in the early morning hours.

Within a few hours of arriving at work the sirens sounded again, and within moments of arriving in the shelter we heard the muffled explosion of another Grad landing somewhere nearby.

This morning Ashkelon and Ashdod have also been hit by missiles fired from Gaza, and seven mortars (so far) have landed in the Eshkol region closer to the border.

For the record, while I know there are certainly innocent people living in Gaza, I remain a strong proponent of giving 24 hours notice to areas from which rockets are being fired.... followed by carpet bombing of the entire neighborhood into rubble.

Only when there are no more urban areas for the laucnching teams to use as human shields will the rockets and mortars stop.

"Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliation and disaster."

"War is cruelty. There is no use trying to reform it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over."

"War is the remedy that our enemies have chosen, and I say let us give them all they want."

You have to believe that if those "innocent" civilians were really innocent, they'd have moved heaven and hell to get out of there by now.

Wouldn't they just resume firing from the ruins?

Family called after the bus-stop bombing. They tell me that the bus piguah got a few seconds, but the barrage on the south hasn't been covered at all. AP did a decent summary, but that's the only thorough coverage I've seen in the western media.
