Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Both Bush and Olmert are the most incompetent leaders their respective countries have ever had. Someone -- Keith Olberman -- recently cited the old joke about the drunk who keeps picking fights in the bar, gets laid out flat and then calls out, from the floor, "Bring the next one on!" That's the way I see this desperate duo. I agree that they would like nothing more than to nuke Iran, but neither of them has the credibility anymore to get their way. The people they're surrounded by may be corrupt and evil, but they're not complete cretins.

(At least this is what I keep telling myself on sleepless nights at 4:56 in the morning!)
