Three uncomfortable questions. How did Olmert come to power? Who supported him? Who voted for him.? When I was young, the Vietnam War was just getting heated up, almost everyone supported the war. The only ones that objected were a handful of people who truly believed that the war was wrong and some hippies that were so stoned they couldn't remember their names or what sex they were. As the war went bad people began to disassociate themselves from it. After the war was lost, it was hard to find anyone that would admit they supported the war. Victory has many sons and daughters but defeat has few children.
