The author and historian Barbara Tuchman, in her groundbreaking text “The March of Folly,” reviews a series of historical occurrences she sees as clearly leading to disastrous consequences. It is apparent that what led to the tragedy of Lebanon was created by a March of Follies of the Israelis, the Palestinians, the Americans, and of course, the Lebanese. This series deals not only with documentation of events in the decades-long conflict, but also with the system of considerations and the relations between the political and military echelons, between the various intelligence systems and the political machine, as well as international interests influencing operational decisions and the ultimate cost paid by the soldiers and civilians in blood. Will the leaders in 2020’s learn the lessons of the 1970’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s?
