Add comment on:Historical Trajectory Pulls Israel and Palestine into Tragic Vortex
Gil Villagran, MSW
Again Israel, a nation of 7.4 million, is engaged in battle with the Palestinian Hamas militia in Gaza. It seems hopeless for Hamas to fire inferior rockets into Israeli land to goad Israel into a fight, but while superior weapons may win battles, Pyrrhic victories lose wars. Consider that France lost to Algeria, the U.S. to Vietnam. Presently we are winning every battle in Iraq and Afghanistan—yet losing these wars, as the British did a century ago.
