Thus Olmert and the Forty Thieves have return us to the days leading up to the Yom Kippur War, this time with potentially dirty weapons. This is both unacceptible as well immoral. For the government, as well as the IDF high command, to dwindle away Israel's deterrent power is tantamount to treason. This statement in and of itself mandates immediate elections. Regardless of the legislative preferences of elected officials, Israel's security should never be so neglected that the continued military assault on ANY Israeli by a hostile military power, should be ignored because it does not "fit" the current theoretical models of some bureaucrat. Israel's safety and ability to repeal ANY military force from any quarter, whether from a single or multiple enemy front(s), is not a variable cost--it is fixed and without negotiation. If more money is needed, then it must receive a blank check with Mrs. Olmert's redecorating plans or law students' tuition supports coming down the list.
