Could it be that Mr. Beilin's "accursed problem" derives from the view that diplomacy can create reality, when, actually, all it does is reflect reality? Once upon a time, wars ended in victory, and in such case, if the victor were wise, it would be, in Churchill's term, "magnnanimous." Now , wars do not end in victory, I believe, but are maintained at a flame-- most of the time low, but occasionally flaring higher. Reflection might be given that it is abhorrence of victory that creates "accursed" problems. That is to say, General MacArthur was right, all along: why go to war if you don't intend to win?
