It doesn't matter if they are a pushover or not. Afghanistan was as big of a pushover as you can get, and with an armed opposition ready to do the heavy lifting to boot, and guess what country is still locked in conflict and costing lives and money? The nature of warfare today is such that there is no winning. Israel will be on its way to altering the nature of its own pursuit as a secular democracy for good. They will not only be occupiers thumbing their noses at international law, they will be heading down a path towards the same sort of extremism they have forever claimed to prove the need for the occupation.
What really sucks is that there was an opening for negotiations a couple of years ago. For the US to have let that opportunity pass was equally stupid as anything Netanyahu might do.
