"those that wish for pease prepare themselves for war" The outcome of the 1973 Yom Kippur War provides some perspective on the nature of wars in the Middle East. The Egyptian 3rd Army faced destruction from Sharon's troops that crossed the Suez Canal had it not been for Kissinger saving them. The outcome of the war resulted in Egypt not being totally humiliated but nevertheless recognizing that Israel could not be destroyed or beaten on the battlefield. Sadat understoood this outcome and he eventually had the courage to make peace with Israel. Pitty that there are no Sadat's waiting in the wings these days.
