PostDoes Six-Day War Have Lessons for Ukraine Conflict? (Paul Pitlick, USA, 07/22/23 3:56 am)
In discussions about the current mess in Ukraine and how it might end, I'm not sure that Korea is an appropriate model, where there were two discrete states, and there still are.
It looks to me more like the Middle East after the Six-Day war of 1967, with a victorious Israel controlling land that once belonged to Arab countries.
What have we learned from that?
JE comments: Interesting question. Korea is two states, one people, while the Six-Day War was between markedly different cultures (and religions). By this metric, Russia-Ukraine is probably closer to Korea, although the potential of Russia remaining as "occupier" does look much like 1967. I invite WAISer thoughts on Paul Pitlick's analogy.
