Hizbullah Under Duress?
The central fallacy for all these pieces in the last few weeks about hizbullah being under major pressure is that ALL of their opponents are under tremendous pressure – some more than Hizbullah in fact. In this context one can understand the strategic picture a bit differently. But then again, clarity is not the purpose of the recent spate of english language articles.
My favorite, of course, is david schenker’s where the central focus of his argument is nasrallah’s weight. Unbelievable rigor.
