Okay, so sanctions are out, marching on Baghdad is out...what were we supposed to do to make sure Saddam didn't try to take Kuwait again? The other thing we did was park lots and lots of soldiers in Saudi Arabia, on Iraq's southern border, and we all know what that led to.

So education is trumped by experience.

Yes Sten Gang and elements of the hanagah were terrorists, but in general they targeted areas of the colonial office and not indiscriminate civilian targets. I would call them terrorists ~ what they did was not crucial in the formation of the state of Israel and in fact has in the long run been a drag on it.
