Lebanon in flux

I just read an excellent analysis of the the situation in Lebanon since the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war ended, and it can ben found here: The analysis is fairly accurate, I think. Israel's army performed poorly and was badly led; and while Hezbollah was pushed back from the border with Israel, it has restocked its arsenal with longer-range and more accurate missiles. As well, and though the article never mentions it, the very reason for the war was the attack into Israel and kidnapping of IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, and they are still prisoners nearly two years later. No wonder Hezbollah claimed victory...............
