Disproportionate response? Sorry, I am all for overwhelming destruction to rain down upon the heads of those STUPID enough to stick a sleeping bear with a stick with the INTENTION of pissing it off.
When what's his name got dumped on with a 500 lb bomb, some here said that was overkill....frankly, I wondered why they didn't use 1000 lbs. Shock and awe.....you stick a beehive and you will not get a couple of bees chasing you, it is the whole hive.
Fighters in Afghanistan and Iraq have learned that it is much safer to set a bomb and run than stand and fight. Hezzbollah is learning the same lesson.
Overwhelming force. Anything less is toying with a defeated animal....put it out of it's misery.
Thank you to our troops and for your service.
