I am from South Lebanon. The Lebanon withdrawal was and still is a success, Israel and Lebanon have suffered far less than they would have had the occupation continued. The only hiccups were due to Israel's exaggerated response to the loss of 6 soldiers which resulted in the bombing and killing of over 1000 innocent Lebanese civilians. You were losing at least 6 soldiers a month during the occupation. Now we have a secure border for people on both sides of the border. Peace is always the best answer to violence.
