Peace, what Peace? 5 Rockets Fired on Israel from Gaza

If, say, Cuba fired one rocket at the US I'm pretty sure there would be no more Cuba tomorrow. Now imagine five rockets:

Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system has intercepted five rockets fired at the city of Ashkelon from the Gaza Strip and the military responded with a series of air strikes on the Hamas-controlled territory.
Now imagine that that was just five rockets today, and that rockets continuted to be fired on us nearly every week.

Me? I got no problem with Israeli retaliation, up and to the complete elimination of Gaza as anything other than a nuclear wasteland. Yeah, I know that's not so feasible given the drift of radiation, but can't a guy dream?
