Who Wins?

Does anyone ever really win at war? Oh, maybe there are short term victories but to me everyone loses. (And, I know I am being simplistic.) And yet our leaders drool for war with Iran.
Sounds like both Israeli leaders and citizens are questioning the results of the last month's efforts.
Amid a wave of angry civilian reactions in Israel after more than a month in which an estimated 3,500 rockets were fired into northern Israel, Sam Echahid, the manager of a local supermarket, was asked whether he thought the ceasefire would hold. He said: "I hope not. We haven't done anything yet."
Yet, even with all the death and carnage, some people keep cheering for more. I don't understand it.
