This war against Hezbollah is unwinable, be it with air power, ground power or water power, like the one conducted again the Hamas, like the Vietnam war was, or the one in Algeria.

In Lebanon, Israeli soldiers are dying, not because of their generals' incompetence, or in defense of their country, but to keep Israeli for ever the Syrian Golan.
