you stated "Israel recovered from a stunning mass attack on two fronts and went on to prevail on both. The myth was further enhanced" I don't think you remember Israel's post 73 societal reaction. Far from the idea of an invicible myth. In fact, it was one of the reasons why the Entebbe operation was hailed as such a success. It's amazing how 20 years is compacted by you into a single "learned to cut its losses". results in 1982 were much different than in 1983, much more so than in 1992 and 1999. I must be missing this great 'Arab advantage' you talk about. I see a lot of scared leaders, and a street that's jumping on the bandwagon of the latest person to declare he will kill Jews for them. Perhaps you could point to the expected change in military or diplomatic stances to highlight Nassrallah's success.
