"The Lincoln update is that it is best not to fool oneself at any time. I am afraid that is what started this war." - Ben Gurion There appears to be self-deception on both sides at the start of this war. It appears Hizbollah figured that Israel would act as it had in the last decade when it grabbed the soldiers. This was erroneous because it did not pay attention to how Olmert had acted to the abduction of Corporal Shalit. Olmert was self-deceptive in assuming what had not worked in Gaza would work on a scale several magnitudes larger in Lebanon.
