    Olmert cannot be trusted. It is clear he is only looking out for #1 (that is, himself) and that makes him dangerous. The greedy, corrupt strategic infant ordered a war - Lebanon - that was not only unfounded and very poor strategy but he did so even after being told by some in the military that it could not be won. Unlike what we are fed in the media Israel is not in an existential fight. Why don`t we hear that Ahmedinijad has lost the support of his people and government? That his antics and histrionics are meaningless and rejected by his own people? We aren't told of these facts because we are meant to constantly live in a state of fear. How else can we be distracted from the dirty dealings of Mr. Olmert and the other self serving politicians? If we have no reason to be fearful, the military industrial complex (yes it exists here too) loses its footing and the tool Olmert loses his customers and financiers. Solution? Avishai Braverman. He truly may be our last hope.
