TCS Daily – Why Israel Lost
Why latest for TCS Daily, “Why Israel Lost,” argues that the current cease-fire is a defeat for Israel:
Israel has accepted a truce that falls far short of its original war aims, failing to establish control over their border with Lebanon, let alone deliver a crushing blow to Hezbollah. As many of us have argued from the moment Israel launched this campaign, there was no way a modern state, constrained by a Western moral code and the pressures of a democratic society, would achieve these incredibly ambitious goals. Failure to achieve one’s political objectives in a war, by definition, constitutes defeat.
The piece explains why that failure occured.
