Nations which seriously believe in "proportionate response," and will really use it themselves when in wars, are irrelevant to international affairs because we know that they CANNOT WIN WARS. Conseqeuently, the American sympathy with Israel in this case is proof of our health; the European hatred of Israel proof if their sickness.

Of course there is another category, into which Russia, China and most of the Third World fall. Nations which would in fact respond disproportionately, but criticize others for doing so. Which is to say, anti-Semitic hypocrites.

Such nations should be feared -- but not respected.
