    20 years from now and the US has faded from view, whatever happens to Israel is OK? They'll be no hand wringing about justice, fairness and proportionality?

      please expand your comment, I don't see how that's a reply to "the failure shouldn't be a political dealbreaker" or anything that's been said upthread?

        that the only thing that matters is power. The power to enforce, the power to bring about war crimes trials--which according to the commenter I am responding to requires one to be victorious.

        I am just saying that, hypothetically, when US power has faded (and it will, it is a question of when) and Israel may be subject to disproportionate retribution, that would have to be OK because the only thing that matters is power--the power to enforce one's will.
