...is a country that is attacked by another country, and manages to capture the territory from which the attack was launched, then compelled to commit suicide by giving the enemy population in those territories the right to vote??? The idea that one country can attack another without running the risk of losing territory in the ensuing battle is an affront to logic and morality. It creates a "nothing to lose" scenario for the aggressor who, not caring about the lives of its own soldiers (after all, we're talking about dictatorships) can keep attacking and attacking until it succeeds in wiping out the other side. Each time it loses, it gets its land back from which to mount the next attack. This would only make sense to someone who favors aggression and war at the expense of the victim of aggression.
