Quotes-start.png "A war which killed up to 1,200 Lebanese, the majority civilians, and nearly 160 Israelis was ill thought out. The decision to respond to the capture of Israeli soldiers by Hizbullah on July 12 with an intensive military strike was not based on a detailed military plan. Other options were not considered. Ehud Olmert made up his mind hastily, without consultation outside the army, without studying the problems of the Lebanese front, and without considering alternatives." Quotes-end.png
