The Gaza Strip Bombings

I just have one thing to say about the Gaza strip bombings that occurred today by the Israeli army, in retaliation for previous bombings by Hamas: how many children have to die before we realize that physical violence is not the answer? The numbers keep growing, the destruction keeps adding up, and we have nothing to show for it when its all said and done. And although its a two-way street, and although Hamas is just as guilty of countless atrocities, I can't help but feel a little resentful at the Israeli army, and at the United States for not realizing how disproportionate the numbers are. The Palestinians are like small animals trapped in a corner. The attack that the Gaza strip is now suffering has killed at least 170 people. The initial bombing in Israel killed one person.
