Gaza cannot be excised, but it can be shrunk like a wart

Reader comment on item: Should Israel Invade Gaza?

Submitted by Dave (United States), Sep 28, 2019 at 06:16

Trying to invade and somehow subdue all of Gaza at once is impractical. A better strategy would be reduce its perimeter by some amount, say 10 kilometers. This will impose a price on the aggression, as well as provide some strategic depth. If the aggression should continue, which it will, then the perimeter should be reduced further. Any buildings or homes within the perimeter should be cleared. Eventually, all of Gaza may be forced to disappear and the residents relocated to friendlier places, such as Sweden or Ireland.
