    He has no one to blame but himself. He has cried Wolf a bit too much and let's face it, he has about zero chemistry with other world leaders as he has burned his bridges many a time that no other world leaders (except France - well then again, don't hold your breath, French leaders and the nation is known for folding like an umbrella if someone says boo) is willing to listen to him. Putin has about as much love for Bibi as he has for Obama. At least I am hoping Bibi got his private bed and some sleep on the way to Russia as he will have a lot of sleepless nights coming his way. Reason for him to be crying wolf all the time in front of the press is because he has no diplomatic good will left between him and the world leaders and he is trying very hard to stay relative in the International arena. One way he can get world's attention is if he can pull off a successful attack on Iran but then again I personally don't think he has the guts like Sharon. Bibi hides behind his party and cabinet and government and buys allegiance of other party with tax payers money. He wish he had the guts like Sharon to break Likud and start a new party.
