    Nasrallah was not smart, he was dumb. He moved to quickly to escalate the situation - and suffered tremendous losses, not just to his military arsenal, which was undoubtedly depleted (though currently being replenished), but he also caused his land to suffer - without giving them any serious gains. The only gain he can show the Lebanese is that Israel considers the war a failure, and that it still is in possession of Israeli soldiers. Perhaps Nasrallah is more popular. Perhaps, and this more of a long shot, Israel has also suffered a decrease in global public opinion. Israel did suffer economic losses - but won't that be transient? Maybe Israel already recovered? When we think about the suffering in Lebanon, only some sort of land gains should be grounds for victory. As such Nasrallah - and Lebanon lost - and should give up trying to destroy Israel -- because it's not worth it - you have bigger problems.
