I agree with the basic premise of this article. In an ideal "democratic" world, the military would indeed be subordinate to the elected political echelon. Yet, in Israel, we have a dliemna. At the moment, with the team of Barack, Lieberman, ishai et al, we have a dysfucntional leadership which has already brought great harm to the nation. Perhaps these folks know something we don't.. In any case, if what this article is saying is accurate, it is grounds for immediate dismissal of the Chief of Staff, who, considering the present circumstances, may have been acting to protect the country. This should give all responsible citizens somethiing to think about.
