Outlawed by whom? the US still uses depleted Uranium and White Phosphorus as well as Cluster munitions.
If any country or terrorist group fired over a 1,000 rockets with the express purpose of killing civilians we'd flatten their entire country. Israel is showing remarkable restraint they even warned residents to leave before they started bombing.
Its not the IDF's fault that Hamas hides these rockets in civilian homes, hospitals, and Mosques.
If you put a weapon of war in your holy place don't cry when it gets bombed.

Col. Richard Kemp, former Commander of British Forces in Afghanistan, said: "The use of the civilian population by Hamas is undoubtedly a war crime because not only are they hiding themselves under a civilian population, [but] they are also putting the civilian population at risk. In my view, if there are civilian casualties, the responsibility does not lie with the IDF, but with Hamas, who deliberately placed them there."

I think it can be pretty poignantly illustrated this way, one society uses rockets to protect their civilians, the other uses civilians to protect their rockets.

you do realize that everyone of us here were originally female? at approximately 9-11 weeks in the womb a fetus with the XY genes will develop as a man through testosterone, but its too big to cross the blood brain barrier on its own so it uses a form of estrogen. Its in this process that so many things can go wrong, Intersex, Hermaphroditism, lack of any sexual organ development at all. This is still Psychology's best idea as to where homosexuality, and gender identity disorder originate.

I would have asked the same thing to my child and punished him accordingly at home, but then I'd break that teacher's wrist in 5 places for putting his hands on my child.

He should be welcomed back a national hero for exposing the extent of the illegal and unconstitutional spying the NSA has done upon its own citizens.

Yes we can use that rope to close off the emptied and closed death rows when we realize that state sponsored murder is wrong, and that we execute far too many innocent people.(which is more than 1, for me in my book).

Zero-Effectuality you mean. What a great job they've done throwing a minor drug user in jail which will cost the tax payers money and accomplish nothing in the end.
