How to Prevent the West from Intervening?

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

Submitted by Wallace Edward Brand (United States), Apr 29, 2010 at 14:25

I agree, an unconditional surrender is the path to peace. After WWI a conditional peace led to war in less than 20 years. The WWII unconditional surrender led to a peace with Germany and Japan that is still stable after 65 years with no tension between the former Axis powers and the Allies in sight. However history tells us that when the Arabs and Muslims are ahead in a conflict between Israel and its enemies in the Middle East, the West remains silent. When the Israeli warriors turn the corner and the Israelis are seen to be ahead, the West, including the US urgently pushes for an Armistice. The important question therefore is not whether Victory is needed, but how may a decisive defeat be completed.
