The absurdity of ceasefire with Gaza should be clear. Both Egypt and the Palestinians would violate their promise to stop weapons smuggling into Gaza. Hamas will dig in, gain popular support for forcing Israel to terms.

OspreyIAF looks to purchase a $70 million Osprey aircraft with helicopter capabilities. Several Osprey planes crashed during test flights, killing many American soldiers.
USAF is very cautious about Osprey, and Boeing looks for foreign customers. Israel also eyes F/A-22 stealth fighter jet, so expensive that the USAF cut its initial order. F/A-22 lacks any air opponent, is unnecessarily advanced.
Israel became the dump for expensive, useless American weapons which we must purchase with the annual US aid.
