Nasrallah Was No Victor

I've Been Thinking:
An interview with Hassan Nasrallah was just published in as Safir, the Lebanese daily and the Hezbollah leader had some interesting things to say.
Nasrallah claimed that the whereabouts of his hide out and bunker was kept so secret that not even he knows where it is.
The interviewers recorded that Nasrallah, the victor, showed signs of victory, but also signs of "distress, sadness and depression." A "heavy load" they called it.
Nasrallah's interviewers are right. Nasrallah does carry a heavy load because Nasrallah was not victorious, he was defeated. His only victory was that his bunker was not hit and that he remains hidden.
Now Nasrallah is forced to live like Arafat - never sleeping in the same bed twice.
