The pier built by the U.S. military to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza will be reinstalled Wednesday to be used for several days, but then the plan is to pull it out permanently, several U.S. officials said. It would deal the final blow to a project long plagued by bad weather, security uncertainties and difficulties getting food into the hands of starving Palestinians…

Well … it is an election year …

I am surprised it doesn't remain in operation until after the election. Perhaps they need a photo op of it in use…?

Fastest way to get food to starving Gazans would be to destroy Hamas.

Fastest way would have been to have a proper port and airport

Optics is SOP for our elected & appointed officials. What looks good in the media trumps reality.

Yes Hamas has to be made ineffective …

Of course in a perfect world … Kind of hard to do during an urban insurgency …

And as we see now and in places like Somalia in the past. Many of the supplies somehow don't go to who they were intended for. As we know like in all warfare destroying or interdicting supplies and support to the enemy. Are the way things are done (IIRC?).

Plus, as we know in an insurgency in most cases you can't tell who the insurgents are vs. non-combatants.
