In Israel our politicians on all sides like to hold inquiries as to why we screwed up but when the results come in we like to just sweep it under the carpet if it involves spending money and when we do follow advice we don't follow it through.
After Lebanon the inquiry found that most the countries public shelters are not fit for use.
Olmert promised to change all that but to this day whilst things might have improved in the north for the most part the public shelters in other parts the country are still neglected or used as storage for the municipality.
Other than the fact we got some firefighting planes how much extra money to replace outdated equipment did the fire service get after the Carmel Fire?
I actually think if we were being hit by missile barrages trying to get out of town in a private car is the worst thing that can be done.
At least in a building you have some protection and wait for professional evacuation.
The government should pass legislation authorising the IDF to ban the use of all private cars in wartime if they feel it would hinder their operations.
