…and that person would be Arik Sharon. I think the guy needs some R & R.
Looks like he’s getting a bit ticked off at the constant whining around him (note to self: always be positive, no matter how bad the situation):
Sharon also lashed out at his critics from both left and right, as well as at gloomy defense establishment forecasts.
“The pessimists seize every rumor, every word, every hint,” he said. “Everything is black, everything is grave, everyone is against us. Perhaps we should stop the disengagement plan, perhaps we’ll achieve a better solution through negotiations with the Palestinians? The left wants larger and more rapid concessions. The extreme right, with a deceptive wink, simply wants to halt the exit from Gaza.”
“Rumor begets rumor,” he continued. “The Palestinians will concede; the Europeans are preparing sanctions; the Iranians, with the Syrians and Hezbollah, will bomb from the north; Hamas will control Gaza to the southwest. Submarines to the west, drones up above, tunnels underneath … I want to yell ‘Quiet!’ Calm down. Let everyone do his own job.”
He added that to give up the disengagement, and therefore his agreement with Bush, would be “irresponsible.”
