    ...Clearly it was Olmert,the PM who set the tone and issued overall order fror Cast lead. After intitial assault both Barak then DF Minister and Tzipi Livni,the FM in Olmerts government that demanded the cessetion of the fire after 3 days following th start of Cast lead.It was Olmert that insisted on continuing warfare when the Hamas "fighters who were not killed in the first 3 days took off their uniforms to blend into general popultaion of Gazanz or went into hiding in underground bunkers like their "HEROIC" leaders,Hanyie,Zahar etc.Thats when some of the Gazan civilians were killed.Olmerts decision was not unlike his decision during the Lebanese Warr II,when the UN Security Commission had already apssed the 1701.Olmert chose to launch a major assault.For the next 3 days when most IDF soldiers were killed.If an independent commission by Natanyahu Government is established let it be fairly shown that the incompetent Olmert bears the responsibility.He will be tried for fraud anyway.
