Fifty years ago to the day, Olmert could find his double in Politics. His name Antony Eden an incompetent politician,his confidence only in his dreams. Mark Licoln19# giving an advice that needs some correction : "If Olmert decides on further war,he had better be willing to go for broke,no more 'incursions' no more easy terrorizing of civilians,just a full-court push to force Hiszbollah out of missile range as fastas possible"Mark Lincoln. The question is,is Israel ready for that now or it will be only a repeat of the same thing ? "go for a broke" Most likely a Samsonian choice as things seems now. "a full-court push to force Hizbollah out of missile range" This is what Israel was doing for the last 19 days. To do it again and now ! Israel Victories in the past were swift and sharp and that gave Israel in the eyes of the world someting more than Victory. Israel needs a Victory to retain credibebilty and a card for the US. A hard task. Akram Zekaria.
