    How about this theory? Israel was not caught with its pants down; on the contrary she knew what she was doing. Israel was aware that Hizbollah was going to kidnap the soldiers, and it let the organization do what they were planning to do, even though such action would require sacrificing a couple of Israelis. Now, when Hizbollah attacked, Israel was prepared to implement a pre-planned operation to destroy Hizbollah once and for all. What supports this theory is that Hizboallh had been saying for the past 5 months that they were planning to kidnap Israeli soldiers so they could do a prisoner swap. Israel did not even need good intelligence to know of Hizbollah?s plan. Give this theory a thought. It may be the most credible explanation that applies here!
