    "Now, in international waters and having opened fire on an international group of humanitarian aid workers and activists, we are fighting and losing the second." - Bradley Burston Mr. Burston, I have great sympathy for yourself and the many decent Israeli's who wish for a better nation. Having seen the ideology driven incompetence of the Bush junta in the United States I am fully aware that a rabid administration can drag any nation into the depths of depravity. This ill conceived and incompetently executed operation will haunt Israel for years. It is a self-inflicted wound. Having seen Israel struggle to become an accepted, respected and responsible member of the world's nations, I am appalled at the cavalier glee with which the last few governments of Israel have thrown that all away. Israel was the product of hard work and long vision with instant gratification shunned for long-tern goals. The men who are destroying all that was created for them seek only instant gratification and a temporary fix for problems they often bring upon themselves by such actions and impulses. Netanyahu, Lieberman and Barak no doubt prided themselves upon a decisive operation, and no doubt believed it would be a cakewalk. What they have done will haunt israel for decades. A concept I am certain was never even considered by the ruling triumvirate
