Excuse me, but I don't think this is true - I would say partial control, but full control would mean that that the people of Israel could rest easy
knowing that they could visit the market without fear of suicide bombers, somehow I do not think this is the case...
It is my opinion that Israel attempted to gain full control of their borders with this latest war, but failed. Thus the need for the UN to come in and
police the border for them... actually this is probably the best thing to happen, otherwise the conflict may have spread further in that region.
What we really learn from this is the fact that Western style military tactics cannot deal with religiously motivated guerilla warfare. No matter how
much money or weaponry you throw into a war against insurgancy you are still going to lose. This is proven in the case of the US in vietnam and now in
Iraq - they have really lost both wars, Iraq is lost but the US just hasn't realised it yet... one of two things will happen here - they will pullout
and Iran will fill the vacency, or the more likey; the US will attack Iran.
Basically the only way out now is to destabilise the middle east so that the only real regional power left is Israel. Let the ME arabs fight amongst
themselves so they have no time to mess with the west... They only real barrier to this is Iran..., once Iran is destabilised the Arab ME will
probably turn into one big Iraq (or africa) and this is very good for the west
I know I am all over the place...
