MSNBC: Hamas Rockets Actually Don't Do That Much Damage You Know

On Dec 7, 1941, Japan attacked our naval base at Pearl Harbor, killing some 2000 Americans. A "proportional response" would have been to attack one of their naval bases. Instead, we mounted a massive four year campaign, reduced their cities to rubble, dropped two atomic bombs on them, killed millions of Japanese soldiers and civilians, overthrew their government and occupied them for five years. Some proportion.

Over the weekend in an interview with Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren, MSNBC host Mara Schiavocampo suggested rocket attacks "rarely do damage" as Israel continues to be under siege from Hamas militants and as millions of Israelis are camped out in bomb shelters.

“Living under the threat of rocket attack is certainly a psychological trauma. But what would you say to those who argue that the rockets are essentially very ineffective, they rarely do damage and that the response from Israelis is disproportional to the threat they’re under.”
