    What no Israeli government can allow itself, no matter how much restraint this involves, is to decide to go to war totally unprepared for what it is facing. This is what happened. We flailed out wildly in all directions in the hope (already proven false after a lengthy try on the same terrain, with the same enemy) of making an impression. When that did not work we sent in ground troops and then masses of reservists for whom there were no provisions or equipment worthy of the term. All the fighters did their heroic best, as did the stoic inhabitants of our northern towns, not because of but in spite of their leaders. For many too many these events have brought nothing but a lifetime of pain. And for the country? I'll leave you to answer that. There are other ways to react to a crisis. Goals set have to be realistic.
