Reader comment on item: [Is Israel] Winning by retreating?

"Israel's Options" by Ken P. has some interesting possibilities. It seems that Israel is attacked and goes out and wins a war and lots of territory. But, with the slow 'give back' of the spoils of war to their avowed enemy (perhaps out of fear of being outnumbered) they pay a dear price. The loser of a war can always win back the territory lost simply by forcing these lands to be returned in any lands-for-peace proposals.
