Regardless of all the propoganda, in 1967, the Arabs did not prepare for war. In 1982, Arafat was posturing in Lebanon. He had no intention of ever leaving Beirut and fighting Israel. Syria, Iran, have learned that silence is better than posturing. They have trained fighters that will not scatter like a 'flock of birds' when attacked. The failed occupation of Lebanon, from 1982 until 2000, was Israel's first test against a determined opponent. The last war, against the same opponent, was not a sign of Israel weakening, but of the Arabs strengthening. Sharon, Netanyahu, Rabin, Sharon; it does not matter who leads the nation anymore. War will not succeed. From 1982 until 2000, every country in the Arab World had the opportunity to study and learn from Israeli tactics. The days of a 6 day war are over. Israel must negotiate.
