Bernard Heykal: How Hezballah defines victory

The Arabist links a column by Bernard Heykal on How Hezballah defines victory.

It's interesting to contrast Nasrallah's frames from Nassar's but the bottom line for me is Nasrallah and Assad are calculating leaders. They don't wage war so the Arab street can feel good about itself.

Now Ahmadinejad who I fear is the face of the real drivers here, is a different sort all together.
