On the fifth day of Operation 'Cast Lead' Israel has continued to pound targets all over Gaza and no letup seems to be in sight. Needless to say that Hamas has continued its rocket fire and today they shot further into Israel than they ever have before. Reports on casualties varied late this evening but from what I see... it’s probably around 390/400 Dead and at least 1,700 Wounded.
Being it’s New Year’s Eve and my wife is telling me to get off the computer today... I’ll leave you with the following reports of this ongoing conflict as it is being reported...

* also has this report...
The killing of Hamas leader Nizar Rayyan by the IDF would cause the organization to attempt to launch a large-scale terror attack against Israel to avenge the commander's death, IDF officials estimated Thursday...

Oh yeah...
For my friends on the left--
Iraq is won.
And Afghanistan is not getting worse...
Instead... the war has moved to Pakistan, (basically along the rugged, unruly Boarder Regions... just inside of Pakistan... along the Afghan/Pakistan Boarder,) and IT is going to hell in a hand basket... And fast!
