    Not only did Israel not take the opportunity to defeat Hizbollah, we actually saw Hizbollah embarrass the IDF on many levels. After the war, Israel sacked their Minister of Defense, their Chief of Staff and seven other generals. We saw them appoint the Winodrad committee to find out what went wrong. We saw Ihaving to trade a vicious "terrorist" with blood on his hands in order to return the bodies of the two captured IDF men, Wasserman and Regev. Most importantly we saw Hizbollah rearm to a higher level than ever before. Israelis exclaim, "Wait until next time!". 2006 was the next time (after the expulsion of the IDF friom Lebanon). Meanwhile it sounds like Nasrallah is looking forward to next time.
