    "There`s nothing to point out that the US would have been ready and willing to fund Israel`s call up or provide the military hardware/replacement parts necessary in the event of a call up several weeks or months down the line." - Jacob Blues The Johnson administration had assured Israel of support IF it was attacked. At the same time it urged the Israelis NOT to preempt. "It`s very easy to come up with the `correct` answer down the line but a farce to claim precognicance at the time." - Jacob I made no claim of knowing in advance in 1967 what was only revealed after the war, or in the case of the false Soviet intelligence supplied the Egyptians, many decades later. In 1967 I though Israel was in imminent danger and supported the war. Before the war was over, it became very clear that Egypt was not deployed for an attack. Thus the fear that Israel was in imminent danger of being attacked was unjustified. The war was a mistake. It was caused by the Soviet Union.

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.
