This talkback forum is a sad but fascinating look at the incredible divisions in Israeli society. Pretty much everyone thinks that Olmert should go, but for completely different reasons. And from reading the responses, people disagree so much they don't even realize they are disagreeing! Half of you think that he was too weak in the war, did not deploy enough forces, and stopped just because the UN told him to. The other half think he reacted too aggresively, launched a pointless war, and needlessly killed 1000 Lebanese, not to mention dozens of Israelis. For the record, this last group appears to be more in tune with the report. Winograd seems to be attacking Olmert from the Left, suggesting that he should have continued diplomatic tracks before launching the war.
