    I was glad to see this article, in Haaretz no less. No doubt there were shortcomings. However, to say that Israel "lost" is ludicrous, and to say that Hizbullah won is totally absurd. True, they claim they won, but if any Shiites disagree, something will "happen" to them. Israel is a democracy where rival groups openly criticize each other, and the enemy tries to use this to its advantage. However, Nasrallah, the puppet dictator, has had to repeatedly explain himself to his people. They may all be saying they won, but they do not feel like they won. Their live are worse than ever, Hizbullah cannot in reality rebuild the damage, and the people are terrified of another war which looks inevitable. The Israelis should lighten up on each other and focus their energy on coming up with a plan to disarm Hizbullah, which is still capable of launching more attacks on Israeli civilians.
