Bumper stickers across Israel confidently proclaim the words: 'We will win!'. But what nobody here yet seems to have considered is that Hezbollah may already have won the battle. In our ever-ready state to defend our beloved land, we have ridden out with full guns blazing to battle bravely once again for our survival. And in so doing, we have displayed all the tactical mastery of a bull facing a red rag. Hezbollah's rockets are deadly indeed, but they could never have posed an existential threat to mighty Israel. But by manipulating our acute sense of self-preservation, they have succeeded in uniting Lebanon, Arab countries, and the world in general, in collective condemnation against us. Three weeks ago Lebanon was a fledgling democracy in the Middle East, whereas today Lebanon has firmly joined ranks with Syria and Iran. Hezbollah may well be congratulating themselves on a job well done; we should do better next time to think before we react.
