Now at least we do have a man as defnce minister who has passed experience and did his share of soldiering. Peretz being kicked out and discharged from the Idf scorns barak but knows that the nation are tired of the corrupt clown.Good riddance. THE TRUE TEST WILL BE IF BARAK KEEPS HIS PROMISE AND DEMAND THAT THE COWARDLY CORRUPT OLMERT GETSOUT. The nation has told olmert in no uncertain terms that he is not trusted nor wanted as a member of the knesset.He must also be outcast from politics.
