    "the accident that 3 complete idiots were in charge of the incursions did not affect the final outcome !" - Victor No accident involved Victor. The three stooges set out on an impulse to wage a war based upon a strategy which had no reasonable chance of working. They pursued that strategy until any chance of a favorable outcome had been lost, and only then launched a sham of the kind of effort needed so that they could claim a victory. Because the final offensive was more for show than effect, far too much of the Hisbollah arsenal and personnel were bypassed and not destroyed. Thus even the final surge in casualties was ineffective. The three stooges wasted too many good men, and far too much of the IDFs reputation. They WERE the reason there was a war and it failed. I will stand with my opinion at the time. The objective of the war should have been to punish Hizbollah and do so in such a fashion as to set them back years, not months.
