That rebellion was not one of the better decisions ever made by the Judeans. Though honestly, they sort of accidentally fell into it. I think the Roman plunder of the Temple claiming it was for unpaid taxes probably was poorly handled. The end result was almost certainly never in serious doubt but it is somewhat surprising to me that it took as long as it did. I wonder how long the Second Temple would have stood without it? Probably until 7th century or so.
