War is the basis of Israel's policy in the region. When things dont turn out exactly as they want, Israelis go to war. The war in Lebanon is not even one year old, and they are already talking of the next war ! Is war Israel's reason for existence ? Paraphrasing Montaigne : "I make war, so I exist". Olmert or not, this cannot last for ever. History has shown that countries the existence of which was based on war did not remain alive for centuries. It may already be to late for Israel, and all this talk about the next war may well prove to be irrelevant.
