Such IS war here. Guerilla warfare is the rule rather than the exception, and kidnapping soldiers is a staple of that. There is no such thing as conventional warfare in the Middle East, and no matter how much you train for it you're still screwed if you come here and expect to fight that way, as many an army who have come to play here have discovered. That's the mistake America made, and the one the IDF is now trying not to. Kudos to them for doing so.
