Reading Arens commentary reminded me of his government's impotence when the Scuds were flying into Israel during the Gulf War. Today, despite what Olmert says, watching what he does displays the same lack of a will to win...only stalemate. War is awful, immoral and a nightmare, yet if forced to fight without a goal to win (i.e. destroy the enemy), then ultimately the end result is surrender. Israel and its liberal elites for years have been trying to sell the notion of peace through withdrawal and compromise, but were blind to the reality of the other party's true intentions (i.e. the destruction of Israel, aka...the Zionist Entity). They got intifada 2, hamas and hezbollah. Bottom line, after hearing Ehud Barak in an interview last night, he waxed eloquent about how Hezbollah will lose in a couple weeks and there will be another six years of quiet, which was "good enough" for him....all reflective of the "no win" mentality of this former PM. This lack of will lead to worse things.
