Israel’s Victory Doctrine: A Response

Language matters.  In English “Victory” refers only single combat or battle.  As Clausewitz stressed, ‘victory’ is a tactical term.  It cannot be applied to Wars, except by poets and politicians.  Israel predicates policy success in Gaza as how to employ just enough force to make Hamas behave properly without causing a humanitarian (thus diplomatic) catastrophe.
