Return of the Count
Well, given his absence, we should all have been expecting Iggy to feed us something with a bit of meat to it upon his return, and he has not disappointed. His analysis really speaks for itself, though I find this to be the most defining statement:
In this terrible struggle, Israel cannot win, Hezbollah cannot lose and Lebanon perishes.
Also, I don't want to be accused of slandering him here, but Iggy's analysis (not his proposals, though) remind me of something I read in the National Post by prince of darkness David Frum, that the wider goal of Hezbollah is to draw Israel into a region-wide conflict. Where they differ is that Iggy says it's a conflict Israel cannot possibly win, where as Frum postulated that Israel can win it, and should. Just from a historical analysis I would tend to agree with (god, no...) Frum on this one; Israel has had a lot of luck fighting Muslim countries in the past. I see no reason why they wouldn't win this one as well.
