    1. IDF has admitted it underestimated Hezbollah"s # of rockets and defensive bunker systems... at least its an honest admission. A failure of military intelligence for certain. 2. Failure to have proper defensive systems vs. Katyushas--where are the super huge special GATLING GUN anti-low flying missile systems? What is Technion doing?=how come no LASER anti-low flying missile disruptor systems in place? These technologies have proven succcessful in testing=WHY NOT DEPLOYED? 3. FAILURE to have sufficient quatities of "bunker buster bombs" in inventory--embarassment of having to get a rush order fro U.S. days after the War started! WAS Israel therefore well-prepared for this=NO! Some Generals' heads should roll for this. Given this new kind of warfare vs.terrorists firing from Civilian shields/populaton centers now proven "slow" times from drone recognition to artillery or gunship/airplane counterfire --SATELITE MONITORING is now required for faster pinpointing & response.
