Reader comment on item: Hezbollah's Victory, Israel's Decline

Sharon is neither a fool nor a coward. There must be reasons. Your article was condemnatory without analysis. Personally, as a reader, I am more interested in why this move was taken, at this particular time, weighing the consequences for both sides, than I am in hearing expressions of outrage.

I know, firsthand, what it is like to be the man on the point of conflict being made to listen to the critique of people who have never even entered the fight.
