    If three days of fighting was "hell" - then what was WWI and WWII, the Vietnam war and so on and so on? Those lasted for far longer than three days or fourteen days for the matter. It was not fastness that won those wars but steadfastness over time. So spare us from weekly polls of popularity, whether it is among national voters or international besserwissers. Figure out what has to be done and do it. It won't take a day or two. But it has to get done.
