"I Hope And Pray That I Am Wrong"

Chabakuk Elisha commenting on Circus Tent:

War. It's no simple matter at all... the loss of life... loss of limbs... the pain... the trauma... lives irrevocably changed... the destruction...

But the goal of war is to stop all those things. The ultimate sacrifice to save the future. However, if the leaders - political, military, religious, etc - are looking for a way out - if they aren't seeking complete victory - than all is for naught. Lives were lost, damaged, never to be the same - on both sides - and nothing changed. if so, why do it? Why abuse people to achieve nothing?

My perpetual fear is that there is no leadership. That the goals are to small to matter. That people are made to suffer for nothing... I hope and pray that I am wrong.

I, too, wish you were wrong. But you aren't. People died for nothing. There were no goals; no objectives set. This was all for naught. There is no leadership. We are in the saddest possible state.

It seems like everything in Israel is now done to protect some politician's rear. First Sharon, now Olmert. sad.
