    Like Ron and Brod I also a commanded national military and ruled a country, but I am confused as to why they would call only Barak naive and not also Ashkenazi and most of the General Staff? Surely what's good for Barak is good for the commanders of the Israeli military? Call them all fools for wanting peace and assessing the situation on, well, let's face it, the IDF had to have made this situational assessments by reading tea leafs and throwing bones to see the future. No, obviously the IDF won't use common sense when assessing the situation with Syria, since common sense, as indicated elsewhere here, clearly shows that Syria doesn't want peace ... and just to prove the point, if the IDF had used proper methods of evaluation, they never would have appointed Askenazi as Chief of Staff or any of the other General Staff who support this notion. If the above is stupid enough for you, then perhaps ask why Barak and the IDF commanders think this rather than just dismissing it out of habit.
