    Boy are these comments wrong! Israel didn't lose (except perhaps for the time being in the PR department). First, a great proportion of Hezbo rocket launchers and fighters were eliminated, while Israel only lost a few tanks and about 100 soldiers. (Not much of a setback for Israel.) Second, a huge percentage of Hezbo's 6-year accumulation of missle arsenal was wasted for very little; about 95% hit nothing of any value. Third, after 6 years of refusing, Lebanon has obliged itself to its send troops to the south, and this will be part of a march larger international force. AND NOW FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE HEZBO'S ARE NO LONGER EXCLUSIVELY ISRAEL'S PROBLEM; IF THE UN CAN'T PACIFY HEZBO'S, ISRAEL'S AIR FORCE WILL IMMEDIATELY BE BACK OVER LEBANON AND CAN PUSH HEZBO'S BACK TO THE LITANI RIVER! Hezbo's are now as much if not more of a problem for Sunni's, Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia than for Israel. Those who say Israel lost, get real!!!
