Ms. Marlyn incinuates that israel won because of the carnage in Lebanon. I would agree with her if israel's objective was to create a carnage such as that in Kana. But in fact, Mr. Olmert has stated ealry on that the objective was to get back the two captured soldiers, and destroy the Lebanese resistance. the fact is that the soldiers are still enjoying our hospitality and will only be released in an exchange as Mr. Nassrallah stated at the onset of the war. Moreover, as you can see by looking at Hizballah's strongholds and in the South of Lebanon, Hizballah is back stronger then ever. As a matter of fact, after the war a lot more lebanese, and especially Christians have greatly increased their support for Mr. Nassrallah and Hizballah. In essence his base of support in Lebanon has greatly increased, and the same occurred in the rest of the Arab world. So again, how did israel win, and how did you figure that Lebanon lost?
