This type of war isn't fought without casualty or discussions of morality and ethics. It's the type of war where rules get re-written and adjustments are made on the go. It remains to be seen how quickly the adjustments will be made, but they are being made. I have no doubt about the ability of the IDF, and merely wonder if the reality has set in that the impact on Lebanon so far has been limited. The longer it takes for adjustments to be made, the closer it comes to an all out attack on Lebanon. All the armchair moralizing in the world won't help at that point. A country will accept only so much suffering before it makes the enemy suffer enough to make it buckle. War is ugly, how ugly will it get? Depends on how long it takes to restore deterrence.
