    They should invite outside consultants, maybe from US/UK to analyze independently and propose improvements.Stop kicking yourself -the war was not lost, contrary to the lies of Hezbollah and Syria.Hezbollah has a history of boasting about supposed victories for local consumption and to appease their Iranian sponsors. During the Six Day war all of the Arab press was reporting that Egyptian Army was attacking Jerusalem while it was surrendering in Sinai.That's just old boasting by someone who knows he has to puff his chest to appear bigger. If victory for Hezbollah was hiding behind the skirts of women and children then,I suppose they achieved that goal. The IDF needs to redefine the defensive doctrine to include more pre-emptive strikes and bolder offensive moves. The politicos need to grow some backbone and be able to take heat from Euro liberal demagogues.Criticism and especially self-criticism is good for any organizaition, including IDF. Let Hezbollah rejoice while IDF trains.
