After all the bloodshed and death of hundreds on both sides, we are back to a negotiated prisoners exchange; exactly what Hezbollah wanted in the first place. I guess it is up to the Israelies themselves to question their leadership as to the whys and wherefors for the military action taken. In the final analysis, in a democracy, the people ends up with the leadership they deserve!! Good luck, you will need it...because Hezbollah has emerged even stronger than before the conflict despite what your military spin doctors would have you believe. They will also not be forcibly disarmed by the Lebanese army nor a strengthened UNIFIL.
