Thats funny magicmushroom, you try to make comparison to U.S. military might involvement against insurgents that is bogging them down. But the question is then what would happen if Israel resorted to doing exactly like insurgents do and not depend on conventional means?

I can never imagine Israel at war for long periods of time as well. They only have a population of about 6million people. Imagine Israel in a war like Iraq/Iran war which lasted for several years. When Arab countries wanted to fight their enemies they would go at it for long periods of time. Just look at the Lebanese Civil war that lasted for over a decade almost 2. The 2006 war with lebanon had their entire nothern population on lockdown and they suffered economically. This is why they have usually been the agressors and attacked on the other countries soil. If they were to sustain long attacks on their soil they would be in sad shape without intervention.
