Jason Ditz, managing news editor at Antiwar.com, discusses the possibility of another Israeli ground invasion of Gaza, like Operation Cast Lead in 2009; the unequal exchange of fire between rocket-toting Gazans and Israel’s formidable, US-supplied military; dropping the pretense of Yemeni government cooperation and foreknowledge of US drone strikes in Yemen; struggling to understand why the US is so intent on killing people in rural, agricultural tribal regions (Yemen, AfPak), whose inhabitants don’t even know where America is, much less pose a threat to the “homeland;” and the ongoing struggle in Libya between those seeking regional autonomy and others who want a centralized state.
