This war, as most wars, was a disaster, for both combatants.These may be some of the reasons reasons why Hizbollah perceives a victory: 1)Unrealistic expectations of Israelis from the military solution. 2)Outcomes and performance fell short of grandiose expectations. 3) Since goals for war were so wishy washy and vague,no possible outcome can bring a sense of satisfaction. Even pushing the Hizbollah forces north of the Litani river do not seem to quench the thirst for spectacular feats. 4) Hizbollah now defines itself with this Israeli dissatisfaction with results. They even praise the Winograd report and claim "their victory" is now independently reconfirmed.
