Hezbollah: We were surprised they didn't wait and surprise us

From CNN

Had Hezbollah known how Israel was going to respond, the group would not have captured two Israeli soldiers last month in northern Israel, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday.

But, in an interview with Lebanon's New TV, Nasrallah also said the war would have happened anyway--a few months later.

Never mind presenting no evidence (because there isn't any?) of Israel's impending attack plans.
But, he added, "If we hadn't captured those soldiers, the war would have come in October anyway." Hezbollah's raid drew Israeli action sooner and "deprived the Israelis of the element of surprise," he said.

While Hezbollah "knew" of the coming "surprise" attack in October (thus negating the entire meaning of the word "surprise") they were instead surprised that Israel had to attack when Hezbollah didn't expect them to -- thus taking away Israel's element of surprise. Got it!

The mind boggles at such stupidity.
