Former PM Barak, still Israels most decorated soldier, said publicly what we all know,"the 2nd Lebanon War was a total failure on the IDFs part. Smart bombs dropped by our more than dumb pilots didn't win us the war. We lost because we relied on HIGH TECHNOLOGY to defeat primitive weaponry. But the primitive weaponry won. Israel needs real fighters, not smart bombs and new F-22 Raptor aircraft. These IDF toys are a total waste of our tax money.
