'East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet'

"Hizbollah suffered a defeat in this crisis"


an "historic victory"

Do the statistics tell us who, after 34 days of beating the hell out of each other, actually 'won'?

Lebanon deaths:
About 1,000 - mostly civilians
No precise data on Hezbollah dead
Israeli deaths:
Soldiers: 114 (IDF)
Civilians: 43 (IDF)
Lebanon displaced:
700,000 - 900,000 (UNHCR; Lebanese govt)
Israeli displaced:
500,000 (Human Rights Watch)
Lebanon damage:
$2.5bn (Lebanese govt)
Israel damage:
$1.1bn (Israeli govt)

You should probably include some statistic on the relative sizes of the two armies involved. And who has the redest bottom right now.
