We should have taken him alive and used him as a bargaining chip to get Shalit back.

You are a know-nothing pacifist. This type of military stike strikes fear in would-be terrorists, as it makes it very difficult for them to sleep at night. They don't if they're being targeted, when they'll be targeted, who'll be with them when they're targeted, etc.
Believe it or not, it's very effective.

#3 and # 4 you both made valid points although I will go with #4's thoughts that with targets painted on their backs life for them will be hell. The only problem I see is that life is cheap to these animals and Gilad Shalit's life is important to us all. Where the hell is the worlds press to come to the aid of Shalit, where the hell is the Red Cross...they have been stopped from getting to him and the press says little to nothing. If the situation were reversed the media would be screaming how Israel mistreats their prisoners.
