Eisenhower, again following consistently bad advice of the Dulles brothers in 1956, allowed Nasser and USSR to snatch victory from the jaws of Suez defeat after Moscow's "missile" bluff, set the stage for Russia's Czechoslovakia rampage, Soviet arming of the Mideast for 50 years and the '67 and '73 wars. World would have been a better place with Nasser and Russia utterly humiliated in 1956 (except that Old Jerusalem and "W. Bank" would still be Jordanian today!). The lesson here is to resist Obama's buffoonish foreign policy and pursue both principle (NO to ethnic cleansing of Jews and their collective punishment by his "freeze") AND vital Israeli interests even clashing with minor US interests 10,000 miles from its shores (colonialism today just as it was in 1956); it wasn't even smart colonialism. US has Eisenhower and the Dulles brothers to thank for a Cold War that didn't have to happen, had they been smarter poker players with bigger balls. Russia had no working ICBMs until 1963.
