    Most military experts will tell you that man for man Israel has the best armed forces in the world. Just check out the number of Arab aircraft that were shot down in the wars of 1967 and 1973 and other incidents as opposed to the numbers of Israeli aircraft. Israeli pilots (and soldiers) take every precuation to avoid killing innocent civilians. They don't hide out in mosques or use children as shields (I have seen the videos) like the cowardly Hamas terrorists. As for Hizbollah, Israel could have kicked the you-know-what out of them if they didn't have an indecisive wimp like Olmert as their leader. Netanyahu would have taught them a lesson they would never forget.
