    I didn't talk about Hezbollah in Lebanon, I meant Syrian "successes" in its wars with Israel. In 1967, 1973 and 1982 Syria was soundly beaten thrice, its armoured units were broken and its air force was humiliated, especially in 1982. Those are facts, whether you like it or not. Only Arabs prefer to deny it. Although it was not my subject Lebanon is another story. The IDF was not successful in stopping the rocket fire into Israel, and of course Arabs like to view it as a great victory. I am not an Arab, but it is fine with me if they want to call it a victory. Arabs are masters in turning defeat into victory. However, the question is whether Lebanon and Hizbollah really had much to celebrate. Hezbollah had some 700 men killed, many more than Israel, and Lebanon suffered about $ 10 billion in damage. Lebanon hadmuch more damage than Israel and suffered much more dead. Whatever you think of the military outcome is up to you, but despite this great "victory" Hizbollah never opted for another war with a similar "victory", despite all their rhetoric. Apparently you are impressed by their successes, but I am not. The next war with Hizbollah will show, because that one will be totally different from the 2006 war.
