It is too bad that Mr. Olmert (sp?) got sucked in by the never-follow-through and disengaged Pres. of the US. The accountabilty of a nation should not be coupled with the vagaries of questionably run elections. I would think that as outsiders looking in this present cast of clowns in the US administration would have been recognized from two decades ago as unfit and unreliable. And dangerous. The state of Israel thought it got an ally with the neocons. What it got was a world class group of manipulators and users. After all, according to the neocon's view, it will take Armageddon in your own back yard for them to reach the pinnacle of Christendom. (Only Christians need apply, please.) All for some rehersed mealy-mouthed cowboy talk and a few pieces of silver.
