Military Leaders

Reader comment on item: Predicting the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election
in response to reader comment: I agree with Dr Pipes - USA is not ready for an Obama-nation

To Mr. Burke:

You said, "Military men make awful political leaders."

Please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I thought military service in Israel was mandatory for all. Please understand that I do not mean to quibble about your choice of the term "military men" as opposed to "military leader." I would be curious about your opinion of Yitzchak Rabin.

Thank you.
