All Armed Forces always have plans in case this country does this or that country does that. What is so disturbing is Olmert and Peretz knew that Hhezbollah might kidnapp soldiers and so they new but the IDF didn't. Interesting and If the IDF had a idea this would happen then why didn't they beef up security forces to protect their own men. The problem is when Politicians try to run the show and not let the military do what they do best. This will always happen. A good example is when the USA was in Vietnam and Nixon and his cronies were running the war. IT DOES NOT WORK THIS WAY. Israeli politicians should only make the decision if they will go to war or not. Once made they need to take a hands off approach and let the Generals and their staffs run the war.
