    I don't agree that the problem is Olmert-Peretz-Livni being inexperienced leaders. Maybe they are, but this is not the real problem. All leaders have advisers, the IDF generals told them all the time what needs to be done but these leaders have hold back the army for some misterious reason and i've heard several times that IDF isn't doing more than a fraction of what it is capable of. The real war started only 48 hours before the cease fire - nobody understands why. There is some pathological, leftist, fear to win, fear of being strong. In 1973, the leadeship also didn't listen to the Mossad and didn't let the army prepare. Whatever we do, it is always too little, too late and unfinished, even now when we had a whole month (like never before) to do the work. Unbelievable.
