Nothing succeeds like success. . .

And nothing guarantees defeat like defeatism. I just saw this on Arutz Sheva:

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned in a speech at the annual Caesarea Conference Thursday night that Sderot residents should not expect to be completely protected against Kassam rocket attacks fired at the town from northern Gaza. The Prime Minister declared that his government cannot offer reinforced rooftops for every edifice within rocket range, saying: "A country cannot protect itself ad infinitum, because there would be no end to it."

The first duty of any government is to protect its citizens. If Ehud Olmert declares that his government cannot protect Sderot or any other town in Israel, then it is time to replace him and install a government that can and will. As for reinforced rooftops, I don't know if this is from Vince Lombardi, Ariel Sharon or some other but the best defense is a good offense.

The best defense

Well said.

The real problem is that this comment was not met with outrage by the population, just a shrug. Oh well, it's Olmert. He's incompetent.

He's effectively ceded Sderot to the Arabs.

One wonders if he'd be so easy going if it was his backyard they were using for target practice.
