The whole world, including Israel and the US, knew that Hizbullah's agenda was no more than a prisoner exchange. Yet, the US bluntly ecouraged Israel to fight an American war, by Israelis, against Iran, on Lebanese territory. The US would have been the winner either way. This proxy war did not work, but the US indirectly paid back Israel for dragging it into the Iraqi mud. As always, Lebanon is the helpless loser. This time around, Israel is the stupid loser. The US, for once has a grin on its face!
