    Peres would have been better ? My God, are you nuts ? Did you read what he told Winograd - his idea was to keep the IDF's weakness a secret, not to retaliate, and, therefore, allow Israel to become a Hezbollah punching bag . Does that sound like maintaining Israel's deterrent ? If Israel had done nothing, or shelled for two days, as Barak said he would have done, Israel would have become even a bigger joke than it is now . As for Livni, GIMMEE a break - she is weak and incoherent. Turning to Olmert, of course, he is a disaster - he was warned that the IDF had dangerously atrophied, but campaigned on "making Israel fun" and proclaiming that Israelies "were tired of winning wars." ( Well, he made good on the last promise ). Finally, all Israelies should be ashamed that they elected such crooks and weaklings, and that they willfully permitted their once proud army to have become a basket case.
