Unfortunately the title "Caught with its pants down" is too true for comfort. For years now the respective Israeli governments have been cutting back on military spending, Even to the level where they decided to stop investing in tanks and armored vehicles. They seemed to think that farting against the wind with the airforce was sufficient. Well it was not. Israel needs a full strength Army with balanced Airforce and Navy. Regarding the tanks, maintenance is poor (probably at least half of the tanks have their fuel tanks filled with crap that blocks the fuel filters and renders the tank inactive, as dead in the water. Hell, what sort of army allows this? For too long Israel has considered short term economic considerations higher than defence. I sincerely hope that Israel will consider this action as a wake up call. Regarding the present incursions into Gaza and Lebenon, blow the @#$& out of them.
