HOW TO HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

Reader comment on item: Instant Retribution in the Middle East

It's true, put 2 Jews in a room and out come 10 opinions. Remarkably funny, almost to bust my sides laughing, except it's so tragic. All of these armchair generals who would guide your column into oblivion, much the same as Israel's leaders are guiding Israel into the same direction should be ignored. They can be answered but with the knowledge that you cannot have an opinion that will satisfy all.

Max Boot, whose recent article you may have seen a few weeks ago, said that 'there really no solution. That Israel cannot bring itself to act as does Russia, China, or North Korea.' I told him that if Israel doesn't know how then they better learn and fast. AND THAT IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.

Just one more thing,, Olmert whom i thoroughly loath and despise, one of the most venal of all the users and opportunists that was ever born has acted in the recent Gaza episode completely out of character. Always one to run from a fight, he entered the battle and used his big mouth so that the court will be lenient on him when they consider how many years he has to do in the can. Should that yenta, Livni, follow him into that office, then as MEL BLANC used to say in that animated movie - THAT'S ALL FOLKS. Stay well, Daniel. As they used to say in my neighborhood, don let 'nuttin bodder ya. Manny
