‘3. Lethality in Motion: Tactics’
Is particularly interesting." Ali
We have this note from Ali. I mentioned Okinawa because a retired marine friend had suggested it to me as an analogous engagement. After reading the Leavenworth Paper cited above, I think that both he and Ali are correct in making the comparison.
With regard to the building of a new defensive line north of the Litani, this seems to me to be clear thinking on the part of HB. The Israelis are not good at attritional battles and this one would be spectacular. UNIFIL provides an effective "screen" for these constructions, and will not necessarily be in place if a new crisis brews up. In any event, those who do not remember the disregard that the IDF has shown for UN military forces in the past have short memories.
