The article largely deals with superficial military reflections instead of touching the political background. It had been Israel's planning to destabilize Lebanon at a time when there were no Palestinian forces and no Hizbullah there. With all its interventions, invasions and atrocities it finally reaped what it had sown. In a new war the human and property damage that would be suffered in Israel proper is incalculable. Besides there is no party any more in Lebanon that would go for peace talks with Israel. Who said that politics was the art of leading a country?
