Is this just (read description)?Posted by: PetersSmith
A top leader of the terrorist group Hamas is having a large party in the garden of his home in the Gaza Strip. Israeli intelligence sends this information to the Israel Defense Forces who then decide to act. An Israeli military helicopter is tasked with shooting a single hell-fire missile at the garden of the Hamas leader's home. The missile successfully kills the Hamas leader but also kills 30 innocent civilians and 5 children attending the party. After the attack, Hamas is incapable of further terrorist a
Yes, this attack was just. Despite the civilian destruction the attack caused, Hamas has been destroyed. The ends do justify the means.
No, this attack was not just. There could have been another, less destructive, way to kill him at a later point and Israel killed too many civilians. The ends do not justify the means.
The end didn't justify the means, it was the immediate disruption of terrorist attacks that justified the means. It is much more of a weigh the cons and pros, should you take the chance now which immediately dissolves the group, or do you risk terrorist attacks while you wait for another opportunity. Personally the hellfire rocket is probably overkill, couldn't they have used a sniper or something.
Hamas would have caused the deaths of much more than 30 innocents, and we know that this has been their tactic all along. Hamas hides in plain sight, with tons of innocents around them. Honestly, i would have been hoping that he only had 30 around him. i expected much more from the leader of Hamas. It was necessary.
You sometimes have to do the wrong thing for the right reasons.
Specail ops teams or snipers will due that same job but with far far less civilian deaths. Remember Seal Team 6, not only did they kill osama along with several other high ranking members but they limited the civilian deaths to only around 2 or 3.
Israel chose to invade Palestine. We don't call the Ukrainians fighting Russia terrorists, so why do we call anyone who is against Israel that?Killing people to take their land isn't justified, and that's what Israel has been doing for decades.
