Fantasy war

"Israel's dream of wiping out Hizbullah is a fantasy. There is no long-term alternative to a balanced, international, diplomatic attempt to bring peace. The talking cure might be slow, but it is the only one there is." —Jackie Ashley

"The Israelis would be foolish to think they are dealing with nothing but a bunch of mad fanatics. Hezbollah in Lebanon is a state in all but name: it has its territory, army, civil service and economic and educational systems." —a former Iranian diplomat
