    Six of years of ignoring all intelligence and media reports created this difficult situation. Six years of watching the Iraninans and Syrians deliver truckloads of missiles. Six years of watching Hizbollah carefully mine the battlefield and dig trenches and tunnels. Removing Hizbollah from their entrenched positions and putting a stop to their rocket launchers would be a daunting task for any of the world's top armies. So far, the stategy has been solid; isolate the South from the North; cut off lines of communication and supply, then clear them out town by town. All this with a clear understanding that at any moment, Syria may launch an all-out attack. I could not be prouder of the young men fighting to free Israel from this oppressive situation. Their bravery has been monumental. During the Civil War, Abe Lincoln would take critical letters he had written to his generals and hide them away in a drawer. That's what you should have done with this article.
