    He tells the truth - "the state comes first". That's what he was doing all the time while most other colleagues were busy with little dirty politics. He knew all along that he, and only he, can do the right job of remaking the IDF into a great, efficient force. FOR THE DEFENSE OF THE STATE! At the same time, he always tried to pull the government centerwise. In this, he rarely succeeded, but his heart is always in the right place. So, he SERVES THE COUNTRY CONTINUOUSLY. He doesn't waste time with opposition or with calumny, but he's working, all the time, BIG! And intelligently. Let Peretz and Shelly Achimovitch continue their important work and leave Barak alone. Bye Bye to them ....
