Amen, Realism It Is

Reader comment on item: Why Palestinians Need an Israel Victory
in response to reader comment: But what does an Israeli "Victory" mean in terms of Strategy, Tactics, and Policy?

One would think people would learn about, and from history. Appeasement never has, and never will, work. When you must go to war, the job must be completed. The loser must sue for peace, the winner dictates terms. It was thus in WWI, and WWII, but not Korea. In all of Israel's wars since 1948, the world, including, sadly, the U.S., has always prevented Israel from finishing the job. The ongoing state of conflict, terrorism, and Palestinian stupidity, continues. They will never voluntarily give up their goal to eliminate Israel. Only doing what needs to be done to make them give up, will bring the situation to an end.
