It is logical, in a twisted sort of way, that those thoops who have been thrashed by the enemy are likely to take their hostilities out upon helpless targets. In Lebanon 2, Israel had several goals, all laid out to the media during the course of the war. They said that they would fight until, (1) they got the return of captured IDF men, Goldwasser and Regev, (2) The would stop the Hizbollah rockets, (3) They would push Hizbollah away from the border, (4) they would "decapitate" the Hizbollah leadership (kill Nasrallah), and (5) they would disarm Hizbollah. Sadly, the IDF accomplished none of these goals. Who can blame the humiliated IDF men for taking an occassional potshot at an Arab civilian, if they thought it was safe to do so.
