A superb analysis by Schiff. This probably coincides with the rather scathing after-action reports that will circulate in the Pentagon concerning Israel's political leadership. The Zahal was superb: the casualty list from the Bint Jibael battle reflected that. The dead were ALL leadership cadre. The IDF is still an organization that leads from the front by instinct. Israelis as a people must acknowledge the rueful failure of its political class and the gathering storm of the Persian Fuhrer and his Manhattan Project. Rice and Bush gave the IDF the time that it needed. Sadly, the Israeli political leadership lost its nerve when presented with the plan by the army to throttle Hezboallah. War with Iran, most likely a general atomic war, is now a probability. The Persian Fuhrer is a fanatic who will, in the end, undo himself and his regime by his lack of moderation, but not before he has sentenced millions of his own people to an uncertain, possibly deadly, fate.
