How can IDF win against soldiers that inspire to die? A part of warfare is the moral of the troops, which means, how much they beleive in victory. The more losses, the more the idea of death will become dominant and the lower the moral will be. This concept gives Hezbollah worriers an important advantage: each one of them is fighting till the end (i.e till he dies). There is no surrender option. The result of the battle wouldn't matter much. As we saw, sending more IDF troops would mean more casualties (on both side). BintJbeil is just one of so many villages. On a large scale, this would mean loosing many soldiers. Is this really what we want? At the end, what is this war about? If it is peace, then at what price.
