I had read Netanyahu was informed a week in advance by Egypt that something major was being planned. The pessimist (realist?) in me believes he brushed off warnings so what has happened would finally give him the legal and "moral" justification to raze Gaza. I also am not convinced their own intelligence did not already know, and this is just an operation of opportunity. I don't consider either party innocent in this conflict; the world has turned a blind eye many times. There is no good outcome here. It will just create more anger, hatred, and extremism. Where Hamas fucked up is the brutality and wanton choice of target, but maybe the intent was to force all pieces to the table. This is but an escalation away from another world war.
