Just how worthless is Hezbollah?

Shortly before GCC troops entered Bahrain to support the local monarch, Iran pulled out about a thousand Hezbollah fighters.

This is curious. Judging by IDF’s experience in Lebanon, a thousand guerrillas are a formidable fighting force, capable of making an occupying army into sitting-duck targets. Granted, Bahrain is a small island with few places for guerrillas to hide. But Hezbollah proved unwilling to take even on the lackluster GCC forces, which are no match for the IDF.

The answer, we believe, lies in the fact that Hezbollah knows that IDF was never willing to take the necessary steps to eradicate the insurgents, accepting instead a level of accommodation with them.
