“Now our sense of purpose is palpable”

Saul Singer reports that Israel stands totally united behind the proposition that “Hezbollah must be utterly destroyed, regardless of what the international community thinks.” He writes:

There is wall-to-wall agreement in our dovish government, led by Kadima, which wants to continue unilateral withdrawals; and Labor, which flirts with the notion that a Palestinian partner still exists. Now the parties are of a single mind. . . .

Not a single mayor, or even a man-on-the-street can be found, even in the bomb shelters of our bombarded cities, who wants this war to stop a moment before the IDF has finished the job, and the threat from the north is permanently erased.

When a powerful nation stands together in this fashion behind a specific mission, the likelihood that the mission will succeed is high.
