    Congratulations to Grossman who did not shake Olmert's hands. Condolences on the loss of your son. I have repeated my opinion in several media that Olmert is responsible for the needless loss of some israeli blood in lebanon and its lack of success. He appointed Peretz, an incompetent, as DM and Olmert can't wiggle out of it. He could have left Mofaz in, yet he appointed a novice. He didn't check on preparations for the north and the readiness of the troops.He simply took the word of Halutz(air force), who was not a ground commander and failed in this war.Lastly, he was not calm and cool in the war like Nasrollah; he was fidgety, shot his mouth off and appeared full of it.So, in my opinion he caused needless israeli deaths. Now he wants to make concessions without proper safeguards and he dosen't advance Israel claims from the disputed territories.Grossman, good for you for shaming Olmert.
