Not just is the IDF rich and dumb, so your PR machine, and strategists. How can you expect the Lebanese to stand up and join forces with you to disarm Hizbolah when your top brass make the threat of bringing Lebanon 20 years back, and carry on with their massive bombardment to all the infrastructure of a nation. How can Israel, claim to hold the upper moral ground when you see the pictures in www.fromisraeltolebanon.info? Hezbolah is an integral part of the Lebanese society, they are winning the reputation as a resistance fighters in the public eye who stands up to the bully, this is the real battle. I fully support the dismantiling of Hezbolah, the implementation of 1559, of coexisting with Israel in peace, and so do most of my Lebanese and Israeli friends. The IDF lost is deterrent reputation so far failing to curb Hizbollah, the global public opinion is not in Israel's favor. There is an opportunity to make a lasting peace, let's not loose it. I support the Lebanese government!
