    Let's face it...we screwed up. The day the bus was attacked and 8 Israeli's were killed, we should have sent a helicopter in to Gaza and found the first civilian bus we could find and fire a rocket into it...hopefully the efficacy of the attack would have been precise enough to only kill 8 Gazans. Then when they fired a rocket at our school...we should have fired one back at their school. A house in S'derot...a house in Rafah...why play games really. Lets just nail them tit-for-tat. And then, just for kicks, in a month or two, when everything quites down, we should send an eite unit into Gaza and ambush another civilian bus...try to kill another 8 Gazans. Why should we always be the ones waiting to respond. If we are keeping it proportiante lets strike first every now and then just for good sportsmanship. Fair is fair right? Are you for real with this editorial? Because what you wrote above in as stupid as what I just wrote here...but what is pathetic is you are serious and its your job. What a joke.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
