Is Bush/Blair/Prodi a better alternative?

Reader comment on item: Next Steps in Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process
in response to reader comment: Re: Putting my fate in the hands of strangers - I will take them over Olmert and the Israeli-Left and Ha'aretz

Some 3000 dead in 911, while the orchestrators and financiers of that coup were given flight, is that trustworthy?

3300 dead in Iraq alone, just to do away with one power-hungry despot, and create the world's greatest mess, is that trustworthy?

15 soldiers abducted, followed by bleating of incompetence, indecision, ineptitude, appeasement and impotence, is that reassuring?

I am the last person to tell you who to trust and where to live. But, since Olmert is really big on intentions and so small on action, I trust his concessions will come to naught just like the rest of his rhetoric.

Major changes take time to put down roots in a democractically inclined population. We are working on it, and I do not expect you to trust me on that.
