"There is more chance that there would be peace in the region today if Israel had been more ruthless in its millitary actions in the past." - Yoram Sure, if it was only occupying Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, instead of just the West Bank and Gaza things would be different. Why I remember when Ariel Sharon decided to 'remake the political map of the middle east" by conquering southern Lebanon. Occupying southern Lebanon. Now there was a winner. In the 19th century technology vastly favored the aggressor. During the 20th century - and starting in the middle east - it started swinging the other way. The price of occupation keeps going up and the benefits declining. This is a lesson all intelligent people have learned. Just ask the Soviets about their glorious victory in Afghanistan, or America about it's Cakewalk in Baghdad. See also: France victory in Algeria. The colonies of Kenya and Rhodesia. The Spanish governor of Cuba, the Dutch rulers of Indonesia.
