Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that there has been a change in the face or paradigm of war and that our institutions are unsuited to conduct the new form of war because they all developed to manage the previous one. Then, the chapter illustrates some of the characteristics of this new form of war with examples from the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006. It shows that Israel was also setting conditional objectives, namely to get the Lebanese to deal with Hezbollah. However, the pronouncements were accompanied by others that were couched in the hard terms of industrial war, namely that the objective was to destroy Hezbollah and defeat the rocket attacks, which gave an early hint that there might be divided counsel in Tel Aviv. Finally, it makes some brief suggestions of where one needs to look not so much for the answers but for the changes one must make.

Keywords: Hezbollah; industrial war; Israel; Lebanon; Tel Aviv
