"Exceedingly cautious may be a better way of describing Rabin." - Ben Gurion He was a general. Generals generally do not make good politicians. I feel that Rabin was cautious because he knew he was outside his field of competence. The post Six Day War hubris, amplified by the trauma of the Yom Kippur War, has left Israel too eager to see generals as the solution to it's political problems. The United States has had a number of generals as President, and only two of them turned out to be wise in their handling of the job. I would rather a man who showed some prudence as Rabin did, than a man who has shown as poor judgment as Barak or Sharon.
