    In Vietnam and Korea the force on the ground was overwhelmingly against the north(s) but they still managed to outlast the battle and thus the final outcome was a lack of clear victory for the more powerful forces. Even with a terribly effective kill ratio there was a political outcome not to the more powerful forces liking. Again the same equation in Lebanon in 2006. Why? There has yet to be discovered a weapon that gets at the underground bunker. Right now in Lebanon and Gaza (West Bank too?) there is massive effort to build underground positions. The strategic equation next time will be to respond and attack in light of this new aspect of battle. What with the women and children strategically places above the bunkers and the news crews at the ready it will be a very difficult battle ahead. Dirty and nasty fighting will require a new approach. Good luck.
