Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
For once Mr. Marcus is quite right that the IDF has failed to live up to its capabilities. However, who is to blame? The blame is with the Prime Minister and Defense Minister, both of which have little knowledge about how to run a war. At the present time Israel has mobilized just a few thousand reservists and flown about 100 sorties per day from an air force that has approximately 600 aircraft. If someone other than 'Omlet' was running the show I would expect a callup of two division by now, with the Golani dropped along the Litini river to ensure no terrorists escape as they get hammered by a temporary invasion. Instead, Israel bombs empty buildings and bridges and fires 20,000 artillery shells that at best keep people awake but do not cure the problem. Perhaps its time for new leadership.
