The IDF is afraid to fight. Even on unequal terms. It has been afraid to commit tanks because it doesn't look good to lose them. Artilliary and air bombing are used in relative safety because the opposing combatants are not well equipped to defend against them. Neither are the civilians they kill and maim for seemingly no military gain. Think about it. Israel, by some measures, has the 4th most powerful military force in the world. Has it PERFORMED like the 4th most powerful? Don't give me that crap about limited force to protect civilians, it's civilians who are largely being killed (on both sides). I do not believe for one moment Israel would have been so freely aggressive against a combatant with similarly powerful armed forces. Has it succeeded in stopping the rocket attacks? Has one Israeli civilian death been prevented? When the little kid gives the school bully a bleeding nose, it's the courage of the kid that wins admiration.
