In case Aluf Benn doesn’t realize this has become a multi-polar world. Gone are the days when a super-power can project their supremacy with military might alone. Invasions like Iraq and Afghanistan, quickly turn into counter-insurgency campaigns. Where you decapitate a terror entity... only to see another one emerge from a different hole. To a greater extent, power and influence today has an economic quotient. And emerging economies like China, India or Brasil have influence which are way beyond their military capability. It would be nice for journalists like Aluf Benn... to view events with a global perspective. And not try to re-live realities rooted in the 1980's.
