‘Other Guy’s Sovereignty’ vs Right of National Defense

.


His Corrupt Arrogance

Prime Minister Olmert Thinks We’re All Stupid

.

Commentary;

Anyone with an ounce of common-sense, who has followed events in Israel; i.e. Rabin and Peres’ talks, Netanyahu’s talks, Sharon’s, who knows Syria’s track record for years knows and understands that for talks to take place, indirect or otherwise, the actualization of “The Syrians know what we want and we know what they want” would have to have been committed.
