Escape from Gaza
Turn on CNN (or Fox News, if you're right now cleaning your bad-ass machine gun) - Hamas militants blew up several holes in the border fence with Egypt. Snake shares his view on this event.
Israel had a good plan.
Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian militant movements have been continual targeting southern Israeli towns like Sderot with mortar fire and totally-not-based-on-Iranian-Revolutionary-guard-technology Qassam rockets.
So Israel put all those Palestinians in quarantine, cutting of vital supplies of food, medicine and fuel.
They tried to restrict air too, but that's apparently very hard. The idea was that in this kind of situation, all those hungry and freezing women, old men, and children would take over from the Israeli Predator surveillance planes armed with Hellfire missiles, and start to attack and kill Hamas mortar team by themselves.
No question about it, it was a good, thought out, solid plan.
UN called it ''collective punishment'', but everyone knows those bastards are jealous anti-Semites.
And it worked. Things got really, really bad in one of the most populated places in the world.
Sure, the Qassams and sniper fire didn't stop coming, but you have to give these kinds of things at least a decade or two to show results.
But then today, Hamas, with the help of Semtex, made a few more exits in the friendly, humanitarian fence on the Egyptian border. Immediately, people started crossing into Egypt to buy food and medicine.
Come on, NOT FAIR!
Will this make little Mohammad bare-handedly attack the democratically elected Hamas government?
No way, Hose.
So please, Gaza citizens, stop what you're doing and go back to orderly starvation. You can fantasize how the black population in South Africa had it good during the Apartheid.
Also, repair the fence. It 'aint yours.
