EU joins UN in slamming use of 'disproportionate' force in Gaza

What exactly is proportionate force? Should Israel just fire up an unguided rocket for every unguided rocket which comes across?

Or perhaps unguided bombs dropped in a carpet bombing pattern across Gaza?

How about random artillery fire, and since proportionality demands ratio's and proportions, so measure the strength of the rockets and then use that size.

Sometimes I wonder why these politicians are allowed to get away with saying such fatuous sayings? Journalists should challenge them.

And more importantly, if you cannot influence the outcome, then do everybody a favour and shut up because you become part of the problem not the solution.
