I heard this quote once, i don't remember who said it - Orwell maybe? "The simplest way to end a war is to lose it."
It's true, but not for Israel.
For Israel loss means death. It's not worth it.
So it only leaves one option - to win.
And there's only one way to win.
To kill Nasrallah.
Beirut will be destroyed and he'll say that he won. Two thirds of Lebanon's population will die and he'll say that he won. As long as he is alive, he'll say that he won. So he must die. He's asking for it. And this will be the victory.
We can, of course, capture him, try him and put him in jail. And then his cronies will capture a couple of our soldiers and then we'll have to release him in return for them, and then he'll shoot at us again, and then we'll have to kill him. So why waste time?
This is cruel and oversimplistic, but someone, please, convince me that i am wrong. Please. I'm sick of being right all the time.
And don't worry about the history. We'll go down as the good guys, because history is written by the winners. So only one thing is left - to win.
