41. Have you seen pictures of the tunnels?

How strong an invasion force do you think you can sneak into Israel when they're walking single-file with no head room?

Military assessments always start with capabilities, not intentions
Not really. Military assessments very often start with an agenda that provides a strong incentive to find evidence of intention. Hell, I'm fine with whatever assessment you want to formulate: assess your ass off, as far as I'm concerned. But as soon as you start bombing civilians, you need to do better than "Honest! They were going to attack us in some unknown way at some unknown time in the future."


No matter what you imagine Hamas might one day try to accomplish with its narrow and claustrophobic tunnels, the fact remains that Israel is murdering Palestinian civilians in broad daylight with no justification whatsoever. Everything that you say about Hamas' "intention" is guess work and does not justify Israel's ongoing campaign of slaugher.
