Israel Takes Out Hezbollah to Attack Iran... (cont'd)

Did I mention that Israel's plan in attacking Hezbollah has little to do with their captured soldiers and more to do with a pre-emptive strike to take out a source for counter-attack after Iran is attacked by it or the USA?

Yes, I did. It seems that Dr. Trita Parsi is thinking along the same lines:

Israel has chosen to use Hezbollah’s action to launch a major sustained attack calculated to destroy or substantially weaken Hezbollah as well as much of Lebanon’s civilian infrastructure. The Israelis may have concluded that a US attack on Iranian nuclear facilities is inevitable or desirable and therefore they’ve decided to preempt an anticipated Hezbollah retaliatory attack.
