    Their has been a great deal of commentary surrounding the requirement that Israel ?WIN? the war against Hezb?allah for a multitude of factors, but what is ?WINNING?? It is critical that in this war Israel strives for not only attainable effective objectives which will serve the state?s long term goals, but to ignore those short sighted initiatives which in the long term can bare no fruit. Israel has a real ability to win the war and win it decisively. The Israeli Defense Forces can be very effective in taking out Hezb?allah?s command and control abilities in two ways. The IDF has, is able to, and will continue to destroy the extensive infrastructure that Hezb?allah has built over the last 25 years. This means taking out their offices, storage facilities, tunnels, communication services and the like. In addition, the IDF will continue to eliminate Hezb?allah?s top leadership. Both objectives are attainable and not easily remedied by Hezb?allah.
