Without advocating a conflict, you're leaving out an important war here. In 1973, the Israelis were the ones who were not prepared for war. The Israelis were the ones who were attacked on the holiest day of the Jewish calandar, unprepared and unexpecting. Israeli intelligence pitted every chance AGAINST imminent war with obviously fiery neighbors and what happened? Reality? There is no reality in war. There is no way to successfully predict what will happen. In the first two days of 1973's Yom Kippur War, Israel thought it had lost. It ended up surrounding the Egyptians in the Sinai and shelling Damascus. If you're going to talk about preparedness for war, don't be so selective of the wars you choose. Each war is an unfortunate escalation of a volatile conflict that should be resolved and only can be resolved fairly through diplomatic and selfless means. It has been that way and will be that way, but your bias and unrealistic viewpoint is one that is counter-productive to progress.
