Abu Muqawama needs another 348 pages to read like he needs a hole in the head...

But this report on the (in)effectiveness of the Israeli Air Force in the 2006 War with Hizbollah is one he'll read cover-to-cover.

Frustrated by its inability to stem rocket attacks on Israeli soil, Israel expanded its attacks on civilian targets to exact punishment on Hezbollah supporters and the government and people of Lebanon. Israel doggedly explained its action by reiterating again and again that Hezbollah fighters were “terrorists” and that Hezbollah was ultimately responsible for any damage caused, but outside of a small circle of supporters, Israel increasingly was objectified as the aggressor.
