Colin Powell doctrine of overwelming force was disregarded by Bush and now apparently by Olhmert. The ratio of gureilla fighters to reg troops is about 1-10 meaning if hezbullah had 1000 in that town Isreal needed to 10,000. That way there is no doubt to the outcome. Such overwelming force saves lives, at least Isreali, and projects rediculous strenght to Hezbullah. Now we have this miscalculation Isreal is more vunerable. Not that Hizbullah can defeat Isreal but the perception is there. In the ancient book the art of war, when you get in a war, you need to kick a@@!
