Netanyahu: Deterrence loss was greatest failure in Lebanon war

Israel admits that it has now been severely weakened by Hizbullah due to the Second Lebanese War. Interesting admission.

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday lashed out against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s Knesset speech that touched on the Second Lebanon War.

Netanyahu addressed the plenum after Olmert spoke and said the prime minister’s functioning during the crisis had weakened Israel’s position.

“The greatest failure as a result of the war is that Israel’s deterrent capability has been severely harmed,” Netanyahu told the Knesset plenum.

The opposition had given the government “full support to achieve the [war’s] goals, but [it] failed to do so,” he said.
