June 5, After 43 Years

It's June 5, the date of the outbreak of the six-day war of 1967, the event from which so much of the modern Middle East stems. There's much that can be said, but given the obstacles of blogging from a hospital bed on drugs, it's difficult to be profound.

Fortunately, I reflected at some length last year, and can simply refer you there. Now that I've been at this more than a year, I can resort to reruns when I have to.
