Dear Yoel, It seems that your writings are influenced by a certain naivity. 'The Israel army which has pulverised 7 other armies' is fighting something different. In our perception we are mighty but Guerilla war is something that NO ARMY in the universe can win, unless it is making no diffrentiation between whatever crawled on the surface of the earth. Look what had happened to the US in Vietnam, the USSR in Afghanistan, the IDF in South Lebanon. I agree that there was a certain arrogance by promising 'annihilation of the Hezballah' within 10 days, but I have a reason to believe that Israel is slowly slowly managing to grind the abilities of the Hezballah. As you have probably seen on Channel 2 and others you fight people and not Tanks or airp-lanes which means a slow with many casualties (on our side) progress. I do hope that Israel will be able to create a legitimate (media, polotics) umbrella for its operation in South-Lebanon, so the Hezballah can be eliminated.
