this from a report by the reserve officer on the lebanon war. the only solution would be for a large professional idf.at the moment we have new units of 18 year olds turning up for duty facing hizballah.they stay for a short period and then the next lot young soldiers take their place. we need to have units who are accustomed to the tactical problems on their front.that would only happen if the soldiers were career men who signed up for many years.hopefully they would be kept on the line for long periods and come to understand the enemy.
