Land for War

With all prior Israeli withdrawals leading to violence, why is Obama so convinced that Israelis will now get land-for-peace instead of land-for-war?

The spoils of war normally go to the victor. In 1848, the U.S. captured much of its western territory (including California, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah) from Mexico in the Mexican-American war. Sometimes — as with Southern Lebanon, Gaza, or the 1938 Munich Agreement transferring the Sudetenland to the Nazis — land-for-peace turns out to be an illusory promise that only encourages military aggression.

  1. What makes you think that the President doesn't already know this? If you merely look at his speeches and his actions one would find that he has worked tirelessly to destroy Israel.

    He doesn't want peace – he wants us dead.

  2. Cathy Sherman says:

    This whole land-for-peace paradigm is faulty in its logic. Land is real and valuable, while peace is ephemeral, not real, & delusional. It's based on a promise which is often a lie. Extortion is a better word for land-for-peace, because it really means "give us something of value & we won't kill you – at least until we want more payoffs." Why should Israeli ever fall for this extortionist bag of lies again? Hopefully, we've learned from our past mistakes.
