Low-gisitcs - or some proof that Israel has lost the war

They seem to have left their military without supplies. Napoleon might have had something to say about that. Apparently, so does the head of logistics in the Israeli army, one Avi Mizrahi:
"If our fighters deep in Lebanese territory are left without food [and] water, I believe they can break into local Lebanese stores to solve that problem," Brigadier General Avi Mizrahi, the head of the Israel Defense Forces logistics branch, said Monday.
While this provides little comfort to the Lebanese, it is very interesting to note, strategically speaking, on two levels: first, that they've allowed supplies to get to that level (what does it imply about supplies of armaments, medical equipment, etc.?) and second, perhaps more importantly, it implies that they're fighting blindly, not knowing what's going on in the Lebanese territory. The recent exodus of the refugees is pretty sure to have included just about all edible/potable goods in any stores still left standing.

Interesting strategic position, Mizrahi.
