10. The IDF has hit bottom.
If they can't protect a 20 odd kilometer long supply trains, then they are virtually ineffective as a force of occupation.
Anyone knows this. Napoleon did, Gustavus Adolphus did, the US Army is big on this, this is standard knowledge - nothing detracts from your mission more than the complete and utter loss of legitimacy. Wars are waged at ALL levels, top-down, and this is grave error, at the highest level, to have to resort to forcible expropriations for sustenance.
