Your misunderstanding, to put it mildly, is astounding. Okay: Facts. These seem to be what you morally-equivocating minds seem to understand the least. Hizbollah fighters killed: 380. IDF: 35. Re: "getting their butts kicked on the ground." Furthermore, the terrorists hide behind civilians, threatening to kill them, knowing that the IDF will not strike them, because the IDF tries to do what is right. Otherwise, why would they hide behind the civilians to begin with? Re: "They target civilians." The reason why the war on the ground is so difficult is precisely because the terrorists hide behind civilians, and the IDF tries not to kill civilians. Understand must be spread. Understand what is.
