I heartily agree with Dr. Bauer's point that the US can impose enough pressure, carrots and sticks, to compel a Peace Treaty between the two parties. However, I am equally skeptical about what kind of peace that will ensue. I have visions of guerilla warfare continuing under a new name but for the same goals as today. I dread the thought of a US force permanently in place like S. Korea, but with ongoing shooting.
