certainly agree with you here. The only way they can take care of Hamas is to send in ground forces, instead of killing innocent civilians. Their lives should mean just as much as innocent Israeli lives. President Obama needs to lead on this issue instead of giving Israel a blank check. You either go all in or you don't. What needs to be done is order both sides to cease fire and send people directly in to settle the problem.
The United States needs to reopen negotiatiions and make both sides come to the table, just like President Clinton was doing before his second term ended. Clinton ran out of time before he got this done. Obama needs to pick it back up. He needs to get a two state solution period and not just wish it would happen. As far as I'm concerned, the United States does have all the cards if they would use them. They can pressure Israel, the Palestinians and the Egyptians. Everyone of the participants depend on U.S. assistance in some form.
