Israeli troops initiated a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip on Thursday, escalating a conflict that has raged for 10 days. The latest round of violence has claimed the lives of more than 200 Palestinians, mostly civilians. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Israel Defense Forces will strike infrastructure and operatives posing a danger to Israeli citizens. We talk with Middle East analyst Aaron David Miller and foreign correspondent Nicholas Casey about the ground offensive.
