yes, Gallipoli-- nightmare for Churchill but not for the new Turkey -- which founded a nation on the ruins of the western power and Ottoman empire. No comparison. Israel is Israel and Nasrallah is no Churchill by any means. Israel is fighting the unthinkable -- alone in a war against "the darkness of the dark ages-- the Hezbollah and the mullah mentality --that religious indoctrination of extreme islamism, hezbollah tactics (of good in social services & brutality in warfare and dying young, very young -- is the ultimate goal of the "fidel" living in the Middle East. Wrong! See how those same middle eastern people have done in the United States, Canada, Australia etc. They just want to live and let live. Time for a real wake-up call to the Hezbollah followers--you need a leader, a leader that thinks human and acts human for the good of his people. voila.
