    The Hizbollah had prepared very well for such a war, set a trap, and Israel fell into it. I have heard say that Israel should have made a bridgehead at the mouth of the Litani, n. of Tyre, and in the Beqaa Valley, in the east, with the two parts of the pincer cutting off the Hizbollah south of the Litani. The Hizbollah was unprepared for such an attack. Such plans existed, from what I have been told, but were not implemented forfear of large numbers of Israeli casualties. Instead, the IDF attacked from the south, where the Hizbollah was waiting for them. "CAnnons to the right of them..."
