Speaking of Israel finishing the job,

looks like they're trying out some new boomers:
The Israel Air Force used a new bunker-buster missile that it received recently from the United States in strikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, The Jerusalem Post learned on Sunday.

The missile, called GBU-39, was developed in recent years by the US as a small-diameter bomb for low-cost, high-precision and low collateral damage strikes[...]

Someone pointed out that the Israelis massing armor on the border just during/after the initial air strikes may have been specifically to get Hamas & Buttmonkeys Inc. to go running to their bunkers and fighting positions along the border, just so further use could be made of things like these to, ah, reduce the odds? speed more along to their 72 raisins? Whatever. The Israelis have very good intelligence and scouts, and I'd think there are maps with lots of very precise markings for the aforementioned bunkers & such; which means you give the ratbaggers time to get to them, and then...
