The Olmert government is committing the same mistakes that were committed in the Lebanon war.
- Over reliance on air power
- Reluctance to commit ground troops
- The same pattern of small scale incursions instead of a massive concentration of force
- Unclear goals
- Complete disregard for the safety of the civilian population
It is patently clear that the government learned nothing from the Lebanon war and the ensuing Winograd report. How much longer can this go on?
