Olmert spokesman Mark Regev on the 'truce'

Mark Regev, spokesman for Prime Minister Ehud K. Olmert, was interviewed on CNN sometime Thursday, and I now have that interview for you.

What amazes me about this interview is that Regev implies that the government knew all along that Hamas would use the 'truce' to regroup and re-arm. Most Israelis also believed that. Then why did we get into a cease fire in the first place? There are two answers to this question. First, the Olmert-Barak-Livni-Yishai government is continuing the weakness that Olmert himself displayed to the Council of Foreign Relations in 2005. The government is 'tired of fighting' and it is convinced that its citizens are as well. So it is willing to risk a fiercer war down the road just for a chance to catch its breath in the south. Forgive me for saying so, but that's about as sensesless a strategy as I have ever heard.

Second, the government continues to delude themselves that there are people in Gaza who don't support the terrorists. I don't know what the government expected those people to do with one, but the government apparently wanted to offer them a 'truce.'

Total idiocy!

Let's go to the videotape.

Leftists are terminally stupid. I don't know what the bozos running Israel believe, but if they've bought "peace", they're sadly mistaken.

Hanlon's Razor states, "Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity," but Olmert & Co. are severely stretching the limit of adequately.
