One major problem
I think that taking a long, hard look at the relation between the government and the military in Israel will show you that the premise that the military merely implements government policy is false.
There's a long article in Maariv today (sorry, no link; it's in the mussaf, written by Ben Kaspit) to that effect: it shows how the military has, time and time again, subverted orders to calm the situation and managed to avoid carrying them out.
