    "The only thing we lacked in the battlefield was a vision of final victory." - Yonatan Netser The troops functioned well. The leadership really had no clue. The original 'concept' was a wish, not a plan. Then the leadership waffled and wavered, at the end, and largely just for show, they did what was needed on Day One. By then it was too late and the damage to Israel was done. No peace until the soldiers were freed sounds good, but what it means is that Israel once again would be occupying southern Lebanon and with no SLA to aid the occupation. The leaders on both sides made serious errors in their estimates of what the response would be to their actions. Hizbollah has admitted it erred in expecting a response such as had followed similar actions in the past. Israel erred in making a response which had no chance of gaining it's objectives. On the battle field both sides acquitted themselves well. That Olmert didn't expect the rocket retaliation shows his folly.
