There is something to be said about high-level information warfare. We are not good at it. And boy, the Israelis make us look nearly competent. Given the neighborhood, I am shocked at how bad they are.

Why are we so bad at it? I suspect it is the Paradox of tolerance:

In The Open Society and its Enemies, a must-read for every liberal, Popper states that “unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance… We must therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate intolerance”.
