    When you give it some thought, there is some humor in the situation. Say that one is in a fight: one person beats his rival to the ground and the one on the ground, although he got beaten, claims that he won. That makes the victor angry. No, the one standing up says, I busted your lip, broke your ribs, and knocked out your teeth. Yes, says the guy on the ground, you are right, but I think I won because as long as I can convince myself I won then I did win. Israel did not fight a good fight but it did win, and Hezbollah fought a good fight but they did lose. Israel's frustation is that Hezbollah will not acknowledge that it lost. Pretty soon, Israel begins to wonder if Israel really did win, then it will finally end up believing it lost. All the time, the real beaten party is laughing.
