Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm just watching a documentary on the Algerian independence war. They mentioned the Anglo-Franco-Israeli Suez adventure, and I wondered if it's an analogy with the current war.

I think not.

Sure, they both surely seemed like a really good idea at the time.

BUT. The Suez adventure gave a decisive strategic advantage to the aggressors. AND it was a military success.

What they have in common is the extent of the "diplomatic" disaster.
