    Let us recall that only TWO months ago Barak quit the Labor party so that he can remain the Defense Minister. His reason for quitting Labor was, as he said, that he grew tired of Labor's threats to quit the coalition if Netanyahu does not make progress on peace. When remaining in the government, Barak enabled Netanyahu to keep playing games and avoid serious peace moves. If Barak can see the coming diplomatic debacle, why did he quit Labor? He should also have pressured Nutty Yahoo? But talking and acting consistently is not one of Barak's gifts. Now he is trapped in the coalition. If he quits and new elections are held, his fake new party will be wiped out. So Barak must appeal to Kadima to also join the coalition. But that will be a bad mistake. Recent polls indicate that if elections are held now, Likud will fall and Kadima will form the government. They best wait a few more months, until the expected diplomatic Tsunami, and then push for elections. We will be rid of Barak and Nutty, the two Yahoos.
