    There is a BIG difference between Vietnam and Gaza. Vietnam was so far from the US that a billion years of continental drift could not render it a threat. Israel is determined to maintain control of the West Bank until all Palestinians have been displaced by Settlers. This also requires that no "Palestine" be established in Gaza that might lay claim to the West Bank. And thus Israel must remain the legal "Occupying Power" in Gaza. To do this requires that there be no peace with Gaza. The price of not having peace with Gaza is clear. It means no peace for Israel, and no government which can be held responsible for the actions of it's citizens or aided in restraining them. Thus it is the choice of Israel to have continued attacks by the occupied people against it. The people of "Occupied Europe" and "Occupied Russia" chose to fight back. Is it any wonder? And who is idiotic enough to wonder why the Germans were both vexed and outraged that people would fight an oppressor
