You misunderstand the very army that you are writing about. The troops performed as wonderfully as any other time in Israel's history. Our family was on the front line. They were as lions, as always. Their orders were conflicted and they were stopped, forced to wait and settle, then rushed then stopped. Absurd. You couldn't drive a car like this safely let alone fight a war. The real number is how few were killed (thank G-d) despite the handicaps. And Hizbulla was only able to be effective with rockets. They are a gang that cannot shoot straight. If they aired their soiled linen as we do all their comanders would be hanged. Police activities reducing their effectiveness, absurd. As always Haaretz is going all lefty again. Pretty soon you will be blaming the "settlers" for the army's weakness.
