    The only reason for the false perception of "victory" by the hezbollah, or "failure" of the IDF is the way this war is compared to the "six day war". The world and the Arabs expect in fact that the war must be won by Israel in a matter of six days. Any duration longer is a victory for the Arabs. As the great strategist of the kind of Schm..Olmert and Peirets decided to stay on the border all the time for almost 4 weeks without allowing a full offensive and entering Lebanon, even worse recalling the troops from Maroun al Ras and Bint Jbeil, like the Labor goverment during the Yom Kippour war in 1973, wanted Scharon to return immediately but he refused, this hesitation is in the eyes of the Arabs in itself a victory. They are not used to victories.Standing out is already a victory. Their standard of victory is very low. And as ususal in their fantasy they forgot that once Schm..Olmert decided to a full offensive, the IDF reached the LItani in 33 hours, destroying all the Hez.bunkers.
