Krauthammer: Hezbollah Admits Defeat

Charles Krauthammer is one of the best authorities on politics in the Middle East. He writes an opinion piece claiming that Hezbollah leader, Nasrallah has admitted that Hezbollah only won the PR war and lost the actual war on the ground.

It's a good read that I suggest everyone take a look at. Here's the link.

He shows how much of fan of the United Nations he is with the below quote:

"In fact, Hezbollah was seriously set back, as was Iran. In the Middle East, however, promising moments pass quickly. This one needs to be seized. We must pretend that Security Council Resolution 1701 was meant to be implemented and exert unrelieved pressure on behalf of those Lebanese -- a large majority -- who want to do the implementing."
