    It is always hard to to wage a war where none of your side gets hurt, it is even harder when you have to ensured that none of the other side get killed either. I think the writer underestimates the Israeli public, yes they complain and whine about it not ending yet, but that is simply Israeli impatience. If nearly 6 years of fighting the Palestinians did not break the Israelis, why would they break under two weeks from Hizbollah? There are measures that can keep you safe from rockets - and there is warning - what could you do about suicide bombings? With Hizbollah there is really no choice, no way you can claim that "ending the occupation" will end the violence. We ended it and immediately after they attacked Israel. They made up "occupations" to keep going and if Israel pulls out of the Shebaa farms they will invent another excuse. There is a 100% foolproof way to know we are winning and that is the international calls for a "ceasefire". So our leaders should lead, not panic
