No-one much doubts that the IDF could make Gaza a bombed-out wasteland devoid of human life in a month at most, or about a microsecond if it decided to go nuclear. Via Paul Woodward, the math based on historical casualty rates shows that’d it’d take Hamas and it’s allies 4,477,714 years to do the same thing to Israel.
Woodward writes: “The fact is, over the last twelve years an average of two Israelis a year have been killed by rocket and mortar fire. Whatever the risks of premature death might be for most Israelis, being killed by militants in Gaza is probably the least among them.”
Let’s try to bear this in mind when listening to propaganda about who is genocidal towards who. Capacity matters.
