The sad fact is that after heavy losses, huge economic sacrfice and fighting words....The kidnapped soldiers are not back home and have no immediate prospect of being liberated.....the rockets were never stopped....hisbollah hasn't been disarmed or obviously defeated.....Israel's security is now in the hands of such 'dependables' as koffi annan and a bizarre ragtail army from muslim and antisemitic eu states like france. Olmert failed. Period.
