Boots on the ground during US admin transition

The move by Isreali tanks and troops into Gaza is the latest news in the counterattack against Hamas. My first reaction was to think about US politics. Many people predicted Isreali military activity during the transition to the 44th US President.

Of course, the conventional wisdom was anti-Israeli, assuming that Israel would provoke hostilities against Iran. Instead, it was Hamas breaking the ceasefire that led to this point.
