The pundits have told us that the abduction of the Israeli soldiers was a golden opportunity for Israel to pull out from the 'drawers' plans, at least five years in the making, to decimate Hizballah. Moreover the IDF simulated its plans and was ready to implement them. If so either the plans were faulty, or not constantly updated or the execution was below par. 55 years ago the same Golani brigade took a terrible beating at the hands of the Syrians in the battle of Tel al Mutilla an event which put a large blot on this brigade for many years. Now the battle of Bint Jbail will do the same. The soldiers found out that the entire of South Lebanon is booby trapped and attacking infantry will be grinded. The pulling out from this border village is a tacit admission that the IDF failed in its primary mission, wasted precious millions and commited war crimes in Lebanon. Who is going to be taken to task in Israel?
