As you read this about Hezbollah’s victory party, remember this: “[A]t the end of the day, even if you put a calico dress on it and call it Florence, a pig is still a pig.” Bradshaw v. Unity Marine Corporation, Inc., 147 F.Supp.2d 668, (S.D. Tex. 2001). In this case, you can call yourself the victor as much as you want, but the facts on the ground are what they are. And while Israel may not have had the victory she needed, Hezbollah did not have the victory it wanted.
UPDATE: If one believes Reuters, Hezbollah may indeed still have something to shout about.
