    Giora, I learned long ago to watch wars very carefully with attention to as much detail as possible. I want to understand the strategies, tactics, equipment, training, logistics and organizations involved. One drawback is if I favor one side or the other. Most wars, I have no such attachment. In the case of the US and Israel I do have an attachment to them. It is far easier to be objective when observing Russia vs Chechnaya in the Grozny Bowl, than trying to sort out the diamonds from the dross in the actions between Israel and Hizbollah. I have two problems there. First I have long liked Israel; second, I have a abhorrence for everyone's religious right, which is to say the likes of Hizbollah. Right now it looks like Hizbollah is winning, mostly due to Israeli mistakes. This really bothers me. But it doesn't keep me from paying attention and trying to figure out what's happening and why. War isn't a sport Giora, but it is competition as raw as it gets.
