What Peace Movements Achieve

Thomas Sowell:

People are calling for a cease-fire in the interests of peace. But there have been more cease-fires in the Middle East than anywhere else. If cease-fires actually promoted peace, the Middle East would be the most peaceful region on the face of the earth instead of the most violent.

There's the rub. There won't be peace in the Middle East till one side is completely defeated by the use of overwhelming force. A cease-fire now would merely bring another suffocating pause to war, not peace.
