    Since the 2nd world war you are not SUPPOSED to fight a war to WIN, you are meant to fight only in self-defence. What A Bummer, hey? Mind you, there are people who actually think that is a GOOD thing; that taking up arms is supposed to be an act of last resort against an aggressor, rather than as a means of avoiding all that namby-pamby, time-wasting diplomacy stuff. It's how the world is SUPPOSED to behave now, Matt, and just because bully-boy nations think they can pick up a Big Stick just like in the days of old does not mean it is A Good Idea. The Arabs learnt that in 1948. Israel got in two good licks in 1956 and 1967, got cocky as a result, and ever since has proved to be a real, real slow learner. Have another read of this article, Matt, because its written by one Israeli who does seem to have understood the lesson.
