Eretz Yisrael Time

Well, now that we see how easy it is to get 200,000 people out of their homes in a flash (and bang), perhaps after Olmert loses this war and does his hostage trade he will use some of those same techniques on the mere 70,000 settlers he wants to send to relocation and reeducation camps (hotels and jails).

Israel military thinking has become stagnant and outdated.

The military has predefined protocols on how to react in certain situations. Apparently some idiot forgot to update them. Ten years ago when we were in Lebanon, perhaps it made sense to reactively send in a tank, but after not being in control of the ground for so many years, didn’t someone think to review (and revise) these rules?

How many other outdated protocols are we following?

In its zeal to chase peace and expulsions, has the government caused the IDF to become slipshod and negligent in preparing for its actual role of defending this country?

The government has certainly crippled our intelligence force's capabilities to detect and prepare us for these kind of (now quite regular) events.

There is a word in Hebrew that describes the period preceding the Yom Kippur War, when our government and military leaders couldn’t even perceive the possibility of war happening despite the obviousness of it to everyone else.

Unfortunately, we’re back there again.
