Words, words, words

I just discovered that the "incursion" is now an "offensive," as if the change in terminology makes a big difference to its effectiveness as a "deterrence."
Cabinet to discuss IDF entry into Gaza
IAF strikes PA Interior Ministry; three wounded
Israel's Gaza Incursion Just a Big Show?
Israel Furthers Gaza Offensive, Kassams Fired into Israel

I just can't keep up with them.

To paraphrase Shakespeare...
"A half-hearted attack, by any other name, is just as ineffective.
