yeah i can too.
but lets put it this way.
defending against people who don’t think it belongs to you, is part of the defence process.
for example Isreal is currently in a position of defending its current situation and land from both palistinians, and the rest of the world.
just because you can defend somthing doesn’t necisarily mean that others will accet your ownership.
for example lets say the soviets claim the moon and send up an army of space men to defend it. the US, the UN, Europe, China, India and all other countries will probably protest on it.
but as long as the soviets remain in posession of it, or in a position to physically defend it, they own it. doesn’t mean the other countries accept it as ownership.
ever heard the saying that
possesion is nine tenths of the law.
for example with your country, i feel that it is holding some land illegally, but currently it is defending it and is in possession fo the land, as long as it can continue to defend against people that migth want to take it back, or hold off the opinions of people like me, then it will remain in possession of that land, whether or not people feel that they don’t own it.
