Here is a rather pessimistic assessment of the Israel-Hamas-Lebanon situation from Billimon. He’s basic thesis is that Israel doesn’t have a lot of good options now. Are they going to try to re-occupy southern Lebanon? Re-occupy the West Bank and Gaza? Those don’t seem like good moves. What would constitute winning for Israel now? It sucks when there’s no state directly responsible for attacks on your country. Who do you hit back?
