    Hubris breeds histrionics. to say that rome viewed the jewish revolts as anything other than an annoyance of empire is a bit much. even with the empire in turmoil (disputed emperor) vespasian and son crushed the spirited jewish revolt with the regional legions, supported by auxiliaries. hardly the stuff of cannae, or teutoberg, or adrianople or carrhae, or chalons. put simply, the jewish power, such as it was, little threatened roman expansion ... a little further east, however, the parthians did; as did the northern european tribes and later the steppe barbarians. get over it; jerusalem was no carthage. jews, like most conquered peoples, gained far more from the romans than the romans gained from them. face it, bar kokhba was no alaric, and the jews, no matter how brave, were little threat to rome. masada is worthy of praise, notwithstanding. next year in jerusalem, no?
