    Some really moronic arguments. The 'victor' in a war is the guy who achieves his goals. The 'loser' is the guy who fails to achieve his goals. When one side achieves 100% of their goals, and the other side does not achieve any of it's goals; the winning side has won big. Israel failed to achieve any of it's stated goals in Olmert's Lebanon War. Hizbollah achieved it's goals. Hizbollah was not destroyed. The Siniora government has not turned on it. Israel was not protected from Hizbollah's rockets. Israel did not achieve the expulsion of UNIFIL. Rather Hizbollah is intact, has rearmed, and holds it's ground. UNIFIL is far more present and now has the authorization to shoot back when Israel attacks it. Olmert, Peretz, and Halutz delivered an overwhelming victory to Hizbollah and an embarrassing defeat to Israel. The three of them proved that they cannot be trusted with the security of Israel.
