The current crisis, may prove to be more stubborn and damaging than first intended. It is one thing to ride the tiger it is another to control its direction.
As with the people at Masada and the first crusaders, events can lead to unimaginable tragedy. Modern initiators of confrontation should remember not to break off more than they can chew.
