Decades have passed since the last successful IDF operation. The current IDF cannot even cope with Hizbollah who is close at hand. I say let the Israeli attack go forward. It will collapse of it's own confusion and over complication. Some Israelis mistakenly say that the IDF is a great army. In fact the IDF is a poorly led and poorly trained army with great equipment, thanks to the American tax payer.
