Hezbollah vs. Israel

Bush Says Israel Defeated Hezbollah

Associated Press August 14, 2006

WASHINGTON - President Bush said Monday that Israel defeated Hezbollah's guerrillas in the monthlong Mideast war and that the Islamic militants were to blame for the deaths of hundreds of Lebanese civilians…
"Hezbollah attacked Israel. Hezbollah started the crisis, and Hezbollah suffered a defeat in this crisis," the president said at the State Department after a day of meetings with his top defense, diplomatic and national security advisers…
Bush said Hezbollah lost, though Israel didn't knock out the guerrillas.
Israel's prime minister and Bush said the offensive eliminated the "state within a state" run by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon. Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, however, declared that his guerrillas achieved a "strategic, historic victory" over Israel…


So Israel still exists and Hezbollah still exists. People died on both sides, and now the UN is going to send in some troops.
How about this, neither Hezbollah nor Israel won; instead the real loser is the whole world.

Let's break this down:

Emphasis mine.

"Hezbollah attacked Israel.YES Hezbollah started the crisis,YES and Hezbollah suffered a defeat in this crisis,"NO

Israel's prime minister and Bush said the offensive eliminated the "state within a state" run by Hezbollah in southern Lebanon. NOHezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, however, declared that his guerrillas achieved a "strategic, historic victory" over Israel…YES. So, how is it possible that the leader of Hezbollah is more truthful/based in reality than our own President?

The loser is also Israel. Because this did not stop Hezbollah and all it showed was the Israel was not willing to get the job done under the scrutiny of world pressure and now Iran and Syria and the terrorists rejoice.

With or without the approval of the world, Israel WILL finish the job, if she has to.

And we all know that she has to..!

Well the first thing Israel needs is a military commander who is not former Air Force and thinks the Israeli bunker busters are going to work. If Israel had used the 5,000 pound American Bunker Busters, they would have gotten to Hezbollah. And if they had an army commander, they would have sent in troops and kept them there.
