NO

The best example of this is WWII.

NO

The tactics employed during WWII were brutal from all sides. One of the tactics used during WWII against Germany was carpet bombing. This included cities which had many civilians. Again in Japan we dropped two atomic bombs; killing thousands with a big bang. The point here is that the will to fight had been lost by our enemies.

NO

There is a huge psychological effect with these types of tactics. Of course these tactics find no room in todays word because of technology and the speed at which information is moved from one end of the globe to the other.

NO

How many of us would eat a steak if we had to watch the cow being killed and slaughtered? Well the same thing goes for the tactics of the past. Because will all get to see the dramatic effects of war, we have a tendency to loose our appetite for war.

NO

It is hard for many to support a war when they see the blood. The truth is, we were much more effective at winning the war when it was off the TV screen, and information moved at a snails pace.

NO

So will Israel win peace through war? It will depend on how much will to fight is lost by their enemies.

NO
If your only response is "NO", then why reply at all?
