The soldiers claimed to be so short on supplies that they had to drink water from dead Hezz. Gorrillas. Now I thought they had this planned for a year in advance. Also, when did soldiers start bashing their commanders?

Almost mirrors the problems faced by coalition troops in Iraq not being properly outfitted.

What makes this even worse, is that Israel only had to move its troops a couple hundred miles into their next door neighbor. They didn't have to fly them to the other side of the planet. How could they have such logistics problems????

Or it could be that they have the mentality of Western nations and complain if they don't have the very latest and greatest tools of the trade.

Think about it. The IDF has much better weapons than Hezbollah, but they complain they don't have enough supplies.

Doesn't this sound like someone packing up the RV for a vaction with everything but the kitchen sink, calling it "camping", and then complaining they didn't bring enough wine, and oil along. Where real "campers" sleep in a tent and usually have all the essentials they need to rough it, because they aren't loaded down with televisions, air conditioners, and generators for there mobile land yachts.

Because to the upper echelon war planners the troops aren't really people but pawns to be moved and controlled to further an ideology that may or may not have a basis in reality.

Oh they make noises like they really care about the lives of the troops and citizens but it's all just PR to keep the sheeple quiet so they can continue playing their power trip games.

What I find amazing is how readily young people suck up the patriotic propaganda and are so eager to sacrifice them selves for people that consider them chumps with distain for the grunts.

Besides equipment for ground troops cost money that needs to be spent on high tech & planes for the upper crust of the military.
