Will there be a full-scale boots-on-the-ground invasion of Gaza?

Maybe. Israel has done that several times already but not for years now. They need to go in to clean up and destroy all the missiles Hamas is getting from Iran and others. Also, Hamas has vast arms caches all over Gaza which need to be destroyed.
 
We shall see, but it is possible that Israel is reaching the limit of it's patience. They may go in and chop the head off the Hamas leadership as well.

Good point, and it's past time to clear that particular rats nest out.

You think it's more of the usual posturing to look strong? Or is it a viable threat this time?

I'd remind the Hamas leadership though - the gates of Hell are not one way.

Israel has conducted itself with much more patience than I could have.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Yep, and the IDF showed a bunch of them to their eternal seats just last night.

Personally, I always was an enormous fan of the IDF's "disproportional response"....

 :beer:

What do you mean, "disproportional?" Don't you remember in the 80s when the Palis traded one IDF soldier for 500 or so Palis? If the buyer sets the terms, he can't complain when the seller keeps to them.
