Howdy Ofer; Good, that fly boy Halutz is out. He depended on the IAF too much in a ground war. Now, Israel should replace him with an agressive infantry general. Next, get rid of Peretz as Defense Minister (who wants a left-wing dove to be the Minister of Defense?) and reassign him to a post that is not beyond his competence like the Ministry of Tourism. The Defense Minister needs to be a hawk like Benjamin Netanyahu or equivalent. Finally, I don't know what Israel can do about PM Olmert since I don't know who might be better and because I try to stay out of internal Israeli politics because I'm not an Israeli citizen.
