    This conflict is measured in weeks and this *analyst* is talking about a war of attrition! The issue here is that Israel is unwilling to make the Blood Sacrifice required to obtain the *military cards* ... that such are required for an outcome that would be favorable to Israeli/US interests is beyond obvious. Moreover the expectation that the international community would be willing to furnish the Blood Sacrifice after Israel's refusal to do so is likewise a pipe dream of enormous proportions. As to the Air War this has done little but demonstrates Israeli despotism since without concomitant expenses from a ground effort the entire conflict resembles little more than a grotesque punitive action, one that may very well lead to War Crimes proceeding and an expectation of Reparations owing to Lebanon. So much for re-establishing the Israel Deterrence factor! Unless this conflict was designed make official the view of Israel as Pariah State we must conclude it was ill executed
