Lebanon Winner Disputed

Page Nine suggested (see "Nobody Wins Lebanon") no one won in south Lebanon. Barrett Tillman disagrees: "Alan, just my two centavos. I think that Hezbollah won a clear victory. The Hezzies are still there, still armed, and (omigod!) the UN is totally ineffective. I guess Dubya's handlers felt obliged to say that Israel won, but its politicians merely pulled the plug and declared victory. At any rate, the Muslims took on the IDF and at worst fought the contest to a draw. That's a win in the Muslim playbook. They're like the Terminator. They'll be back. With bigger toys next time."
