Sherman in Gaza

Can you imagine William Tecumseh Sherman agreeing to a three hour cease fire in order to deliver humanitarian aid to the citizens of Atlanta? Nor can I.

How much longer would the Civil War have lasted and how many more Northern soldiers would have died had Sherman not employed his scorched earth policy?

    South won the war, just so you know.

    We allow continued moslem desecration of our holiest site in J-m. We return Yericho, Shechem, and Chevron to their control. We are being terrorized from the very areas in Gaza from which Jews were forcibly evicted. We are governed by one of the most corrupt governments in the "western" world.

    Is a 3 hour ceasefire really what troubles you?

    Amen, MoC. Don't know if you saw this, but it's along the same lines: Click.

    (Though FWIW, I'm conflicted about what Israel's doing in this situation.)
