Abstract
War is usually seen as a zero sum game, someone lose and someone wins. But what if the purpose for the actors in the war is to reach political goals in a longer perspective, rather than win and defeat the enemy?

One would have expected a full-scale war and invasion of Lebanon from Israeli side, but the war became to be something else.

The study aims to find out who actually won the war, if anyone did?

Method: the base of the study are Clausewitz theory on war as an extension of politics... (More)

Purpose:
The study aims to find out who actually won the war, if anyone did?

Method: the base of the study are Clausewitz theory on war as an extension of politics and Robert Axelrod’s theory of co-operation, used in a qualitative study from a deductive point of view.

The results of the study show that the war had two winners, Hezbollah and Israel. The war was indeed an extension of political means and fought in a very limited way, to create apti-tude for the actors to reach their political goals. (Less)
