This time it is being called Operation Protective Edge. In previous years it has been dubbed by Israel as Operation Pillar of Defence and Operation Cast Lead.

Unintended consequences of Iraq war

History is littered with the unintended consequences of war. Former Chief of General Staff, Lord David Richards, reminds us that the Second World War was the indirect result of reparations imposed on Germany at the end of the First World War.
