It would be out of character for him to go there on a whim, to go there without a plan to use his presence to get Israel back on track to proportional response. It's a hysterical Netanyahu government is managing this crisis so poorly.

It's a little bit of a gamble to extend his prestige on this issue. Whatever happens in Gaza is bound to be a shit show and there's little to gain in ameliorating the devastating consequences that are bound to cascade all over the region. But Joe ain't the kind of guy who won't try to save a few lives just because the risks outweigh the rewards
