It seems that the killings, the rocket attacks, the bombings, the hatreds and the sorrows still remain a feature of life in this part of the world. Incredibly, in all of 66 years and more, no one has thought to approach the situation in anything other that what has long been established as the standard manner; the conventional response to aggression being defined as much more of the same but with all the consequences that then might follow.

After centuries, even millennia, where such a technique has held sway in every civilised (and uncivilised) region of the planet, shouldn’t some alternate strategy have evolved by now? A replacement must be well overdue for so antiquated, wasteful, deadly and predicable a way of settling scores and deterring enemies. – ‘ for those of us with better things to do.’

Well, evolution does tend to enhance the chances for survival in every species, especially that of the human variety. It might therefore be in all our best interests to move quickly on to the next stage in the process. Otherwise, we might miss the opportunity forever.
