    "if so choose, the IDF can send a lot more soldiers to the area, who are well trained to fight just the kind of war that you described. Given that the Hezbolla has no more than 500 fighters in one location, it seems that they could simply be overpowered by the numbers of well trained IDF soldiers." - Giora This is true, but would require more casualties. We also don't know how many of the 2,000 to 3,500 reserves have been activated. In theory the total Hizbollah force at the start of action could have been 4,000, or only 2,300. If the situation grows too ominous then the guerrilla fighter simply withdraws to fight another day. Clearly the Olmert government did not learn anything from past experiences with Hizbollah, nor has it been willing to call up the necessary numbers of reserves to push Hizbollah far enough north to prevent attacks on Israeli cities. It is going to take a lot more troops, pushing a lot harder, and taking more casualties to achieve Olmert's goals.
