Does it really matter? I mean good riddance, right?

What a silly mistake by Netanyahu. He should have just sent in a commando raid. The commandos could have killed Khalid Mish'al, transported his body to some spot in the Mediterranean, buried him at sea, and then Netanyahu could have made an announcement taking credit for the deed in a television address. Then he would have been able to campaign for re=election as Prime Minister crowing I killed Mish'al. Or he could have ordered an aerial drone to attack Mish'al with a guided missile, and not risked the lives of any Israelis while doing the deed.

War fighting is a dirty business.

There's one little problem with your scenario. Meshaal was not hiding in Jordan as a fugitive, he was there as the invited guest of Jordan, and Israel had enjoyed normal relations with Jordan ever since they signed a peace treaty with them three years earlier. How do you think the U.S. would have reacted if Israel had carried out a hit on Yasar Arafat while he was on one of his many visits to the White House during the Clinton administration? You Likudniks have a penchant for making bad analogies.

There is one big problem with your comprehension. The who, why, when and how aren't really important. The decision to order someone killed made by national leaders is not something unique to Netanyahu. Those decisions are made by the leaders of countries who have to decide what is in their respective country's best interests. Even the President of the United States has to make those decisions. As I previously wrote, war fighting is a dirty business.

I get the similarities but you seem unable to recognize the important differences - assassinating the invited guest of an ally is something the U.S. doesn't do. Nor do we go around forging passports of our allies' citizens to commit murder, or go around murdering university professors, or attacking our allies' navy in international waters. Only an Israel-firster and Likud apologist would try to make the argument that the U.S. is no better Israel when it comes to these matters.

These scenarios are very generic, kill them all, any way, any time any place, the heroic IDF and clever Mossad can do anything to anyone because as chosen people they are above the law and can do as they desire. Jesus loves them and will send a hurricane or flood if you don't.
