I’m not sure it’s time to push the (for lack of a better term) “panic button” yet in re:  “End Times” prophecy or anything.

But I do  think this is probably going to push things along a bit.

ISRAEL’S air force has fired about 30 missiles at targets in the Gaza Strip, destroying Hamas police compounds and killing at least 140 people.

Television footage showed dead bodies scattered on a road and wounded and dead being carried away by distraught rescuers. There was widespread damage to buildings.

Of course, what the bastards at News.com don’t  tell you right off the bat is why  Israel responded as it did.  That  doesn’t come until slightly later:

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the attack, which followed a decision by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s security cabinet to widen reprisals for cross-border Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel.

Which, of course, Roto-Reuters was at least decent enough to tell you almost from the start.

Militants in the Gaza Strip, who have launched dozens of rocket attacks against Israel since a truce expired just over a week ago, fired more salvoes that killed one Israeli man and wounded several others.

Kinda like, y’know, “oh, by the way, sorta kinda maybe Israel may have been, we dunno, perhaps a bit miffed ’cause Hamas was havin’ a bit of fun  with ‘em.”

Fuckin’ asshats at News.com.

If I were the Iranian dogs RightAboutNow™, I think I’d be a little worried.  Looks like Ehud’s chosen not to wait for the Obambi coronation, and is launching the predicted premptive strikes now.

Breaks my heart, it does.

    If Iran is stupid enough to try and dance at this particular party, they will, at least, loose most of their infrastructure.

    The one possible fly in the ointment would be if Bushikins were to threaten to withhold military material if Israel doesn’t play dad.

    The rumors have been flying fast and furious that Israel will NOT allow Iran to possess a nuclear reactor, no matter what…and that their best chance to act will be sometime between today and, oh…January 20th.

    Buckle your seatbelts, gents. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
