accomplished it's goal in weakening IDF in a war of attrition. It shows how perpetual war cannot be sustained but don't tell that to your hadcore Zionists. The lesson should be Israel needs to seek peace and deal with Palestinian issue in a fair and just way. It's silly to suggest there is any surprise the IDF entered the war weak and unprepared. They have been busy occupying 3.5 million natives and involved in squashing liberation resistance in the occupied territories for decades. It's amusing to read how many believe getting more tanks, different leadership in Tel-Aviv, things will be any different. If third intifada breaks out, another 5 years of hell, then it seems to me the more things change here, the more they stay the same. Can Israel offer it's people something better than perpetual war? It doesn't look that way and the people are being played like a cheap violen by their leaders. Just bring in the third act, usher in Netanyahoo and it's deja vue all over again.
