When I read this part: " That is the kind of war, possibly without end, that Israelis believe should be waged, with the U.S. in front and in command" I found it frightening. I don't want to live in a country continually in war. Israel has done that (not of their own accord all the time). I haven't in the US. I'm the same age as the modern state of Israel and have enjoyed many years of no war. I wish Israel luck in her search for peace but do not wish continued war for the USA.
