The Precedent of anti-Civilian Warfare

This is the way Israel fights back:
RAFAH, Gaza Strip - Israel kept up the pressure on Palestinian militants to release a captive Israeli soldier Wednesday, sending its warplanes to bomb a Hamas training camp after knocking out electricity and water supplies for most of the 1.3 million residents of the Gaza Strip.(emphasis added)
I guess we have the precedents in this:

Spraying Agent Orange in Vietnam.

The effects of Agent Orange.

And more recently we have a power plant bombed in Yugoslavia:

But that was preceded by this:

As we have discussed here before, the gravest threat to civilization is that Israel has 200 nuclear weapons with a clear precedent of asymmetric retaliation.

Juan Cole goes on about the incursion into Gaza today. He also says:
The Israeli Army has a long history of using plausible deniability to muddy the waters about its accountability in deaths of innocents. If we had videotape of everything they have done in the West Bank and Gaza, we'd be having war crimes trials for the rest of the century.
