Evidently he crossed the bar.
Never liked him, but, De mortuis...

Why should he rest in peace? He didn't want anyone else to.

amazing. We're struggling with one family whose child is brain dead from a botched surgery and who are trying to get the hospital to keep her alive, and another couple and husband whose daughter/wife is brain dead but pregnant and are trying to get the hospital to permit her to be taken off life support even tho the foetus will also die, and the Israelis are just now allowing a man who's been dead for 8 years to finally pass on.

The Israelis just can't let go, and now we have some Senate Democrats who want to increase the restrictions on Iran rather than cooperate with the peace process, and are bucking their own party's leader while he tries to promote peace in the middle east which the Israelis don't want.

What to do, what to do...

No doubt that he was an exceptional military man and leader of men.

But... do you allow a military man to run a democracy ?

There was this guy, Eisenhower.
