Cast Lead was never about killing fighters it was about destroying the smuggling infastructure and arms dumps and it worked. The only screw up was Olmert. The IDF commanders said give us another week and we can smash Hamas and clean house. Sadly Olmert put politics first - the election was approaching and Kadima were way behind in all the polls and every party had put their campaigning on hold during Cast Lead. Livni & Barak were desperate to wrap up this war and get back on the campaign trail so demanding nothing from Hamas Olmert unilaterally withdrew before the job was finished turning what was on its way to being a great victory into something that wasn't a victory but wasn't a failure. If Bibi has what it takes to go into Gaza and stick it out till the job is done 100% it will be a victory anything less is a failure and waste or lives & money. Israels prolems have been for a long time now we start out with the right tactics then politicians to get involved and screw it up
