Total defeat

Reader comment on item: My Peace Plan: An Israeli Victory

Submitted by Gabriel Wilensky (United States), Apr 29, 2010 at 13:10

Mr. Pipes is absolutely correct. Only when one of the parties admits defeat the war is really over. To add to the cited quotes, in 1944, Brig.-Gen. Bonner F. Fellers, chief of psychological warfare operations for Douglas MacArthur, wrote to his boss: "An absolute and unconditional defeat of Japan is the essential ingredient for a lasting peace in the Orient. Only complete military disaster and stinging defeat and colossal losses will prove to the people that the military machine is vincible and that their fanatical leadership has taken them the way to disaster." The question is, how does Israel achive this when is using white gloves to fight the Palestinian extremists?
