Ceasefire arrangements tend to move from the "war arena" to the "politics arena"(nation to nation relationships) and like any "treaty" arrangement depend upon a level of integrity, honesty, and mutual trust.
WW was just illustrating the case that in dealing with Islam there is no honesty or integrity since war and politics are one in the same.
Your post is underscoring that one should make no "deals" or treaties with anyone Islamic since deception/deceit is to be expected and not objected to.
Operation Desert Storm "ended" with a "cease-fire"/armistice frequently violated by Iraq. From your post would seem Iraq was totally "ethical" to violate it's Word of Trust, and USA totally authorized to engage OIF based on that.
