"It took you 2 posts of nonsense to actually get to talking about the buffer zone."
Demonstrably untrue. In my first response I said why the buffer zone is not a legitimate strategy.
"Lets address your strawmen: "First of all, we are talking about people who justify bombing schools." Not part of this discussion, just more emotional drivel"
Not a strawman. That's 100% true and I brought it up because YOU brought up civilian casualties. I don't think you know what "strawman" means. And employing obvious double standards where you bring up a topic and then criticize me for commenting on it isn't going to work with me.
"They are not... they are saying this area is going to be hugely suspect, and if you want shred of hope for survival, do not operate here."
You're splitting hairs. Israel has no right to declare someone else's land a no-man's land. If they are telling people that the penalty for being in this area is death, then they are effectively claiming this territory until such time as the death threat is revoked.
"Definitely against international law, youd support that? theres still landmines from half a century ago blowing kids legs off today."
Pffft. We're talking about mining underground tunnels used by terrrorists. Blow up all the terrorist legs you want and you won't get a peep out of me.
Look, you don't have to like my suggestions. Its not my job to solve this problem. Hell, Israeli heads of state have admitted to not wanting it solved. The idea that Israel has any right to tell people who aren't Israelis that they can't live in their own homes is absurd.
Furthermore, Gaza is already a big sardine can. How can you expect civilians not to be located close to Hamas targets when you keep squeezing the entire population into smaller and smaller spaces? The whole "human shield" thing becomes self perpetuating because they can't help but be on top of Hamas as they have less space to work with...
