IDF conducts massive drill to ‘simulate conditions of war with Hezbollah’

via Times Of Israel.
The army conducted a massive drill over the last week which was designed to train soldiers for combat operations in topographical conditions similar to those in Lebanon, the Israel Defense Forces said Friday.

The exercise was the largest one carried out by the 401st Brigade of the Armored Corps in recent years, according to Channel 12 news. The soldiers carried out drills in coordination with the Israeli Air Force, as well as the engineering and intelligence corps.

I know its just me.  I know I'm probably being stupid.  But when I take a look around the world via the internet I keep hearing one thing.

Wars drums beating everywhere.

I can't help but think that we had a period of peace.  Squandered it by conducting military operations instead of attacking it as a police problem and now we're about to resume the natural course of human history.

Warfare affecting all.

I think future generations will think we had it easy and we did was whine.

But back on task.

Israel is telegraphing their punch.  There will be fighting in Lebanon soon.  I can't give a date but this is obviously a prelude to war.

Since I'm a supporter of Israel I'm hoping they do well.

But confidence is not high.  Hope I'm wrong.
