I think this is putting a brave face on the outcome. From a political point of view, Hamas had teh upper hand given that a ground invasion would have likely cost the Israeli government teh elections. The moves now to lift or ease of teh blockage shows that Hamas will walk away with a net gain. It's too bad the politicians on both sides think of wars as political maneuvers and treat civilians as collateral damage.
