Bravado? Machismo? What was achieve by this Israeli invasion into Lebanon? What was achieved strategically? Tactically? Did it get the kidnapped soldiers released? Did it remove Hizbollah as a political force in Lebanon? Did it engender more sympathy among non-shi'ite Lebanese for Israel? It did nothing but wreck vengence upon a contry and its civilian population and this was Israel's intent. It was a way of saying:"you harbour them, then we will destroy you for doing so." That's what this is about and all it has done was further destabilise Lebanon and isolate Israel.
