Israel has been soft for 13 years - since Oslo...Hezbollah has had 6 years to dig in and fortify itself in Bunkers in perfect mountianeous terrain and to perfect its rocket tactics... Israel either did not anticipate having to fight Hezbollah or mis-calculated in its 'Oslo Syndrome'...Thus they did not plan this War but reacted when its soldiers were taken ... Thank G-D the war started now and not when Hezbollah was ready to attack ...The US has also not any success in Iraq in breaking the Insurgency... The Arabs best defensive weapon are its civilians which they use as shields.... any War takes time and only later can the results be known...
