    Israel/Lebanon before July 12 and today have a different dynamic, one that is more to Israel's liking. Those talking of Israel's defeat are just projecting their own desires and their own actions would they be in our shoes. The "liberation" of Lebanon, the "standing up to the Israelis" smoke and mirrors because Israel has no designs on Lebanon, was dragged in grudgingly and has no interest there. hizbullah succeeded in destroying Lebanon and Israel's deterrence suffered only in that hizbullah didn't care about their own. There is no deterrence in that type of situation. We have a border that will be clean, we'll have arms going just to Lebanon, UN effectively has taken a terrorist groups teeth away if it holds. Lebanon is decades behind where it was July 11 and any country harboring this type of group has to wonder "is it worth it"? Egypt gave the answer, no responsible government would allow itself to implode the way hizbullah watched lebanon.
