<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Considering how militarily ineffective these rocket attacks are, and the vigorous Israeli response they provoke, if one were a committed anti-Palestinian, I can hardly think of a more cost effective way of damaging the Palestinians than by giving them more of those dumb little rockets. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Of course, such an evil ploy could be easily thwarted by the Palestinians having the collective brainlobes to realize firing those rockets is el-maxo-stupido, but the chances of that defense being mounted is nil.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#ff00ff">If not for bad Pluck, I'd have no Pluck at all . . .</font></p><p> </p><p><font color="#0000ff">This is your vogon, posting under coeptus, and trying IE and Firefox  to see if either is faster with fewer misloads.  Erf !!</font></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> </div>
