The World According To Tzipi Livni

Israeli Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, has become a rising star in Israeli politics thanks to the war with Hezbollah in Lebanon. Yet she does little but defend the terrible destruction of lebanon that Israel pursued in their failed attack to uproot just 2,000 to 3,000 Hezbollah militants.

If anything the failed war not only has left Lebanon weaker and now gives Hezbollah an excellent opportunity for more power in the weakened national govenment, but the failed war also only invites more future aggression from Hezbollah, Syria and Iran. For Iran, this war may have become a dress rehearsal similar to the war in Spain that Nazi Germany supported in 1938. Unfortunately sometimes small wars like this only become a proving ground for weapons and military strategy for a larger conflict down the road in the future.

Tzipi Livni may be a rising political star in Israel. But she is only one of many who backed a policy that grossly failed to destroy the Hezbollah terrorist organization and actually weakened Israel by presenting a dangerous sense of weakness to Iran. This is indeed very serious, and only invites future war when Iran and Hezbollah are both stronger yet.

Not only did the war destroy many lives and the economy in Lebanon, but it broke the invincible reputation of the Israeli military and now invites only more war for the future. Iran and Hezbollah found a military strategy that works unfortunately and will only make future use of what they learned in this month long conflict when the current peace agreement fails in the future.
