"We fought for nothing"

Yikes. This is not a good commentary on the once-feared Israeli army. Meanwhile, our "never been in uniform" warmonger, neo-conartist elite are telling themselves and the world that Israel won. Whatevuh, dude.

"We fought for nothing. We cleared houses that will be reoccupied in no time," said Ilia Marshak, a 22-year-old infantryman who spent a week in Lebanon. Marshak said his unit was hindered by a lack of information, poor training and untested equipment. In one instance, Israeli troops occupying two houses inadvertently fired at each other because of poor communication between their commanders. "We almost killed each other,” he said. "We shot like blind people. ... We shot sheep and goats." here
