Follow Them?

Dry Bones cartoon: IDF Chief Resigns... the first Post-Lebanon Resignation.
Parents of fallen Israeli soldiers are demanding that Olmert and Peretz (Israel's Defense Minister) resign.
According to YNet:
"In letter to leading candidates for next IDF chief bereaved parents urge them not to accept appointment until Olmert, Peretz resign"
- more

But so far, Olmert and Peretz are just not listening:

"Defense Minister Peretz has begun meeting with candidates to select IDF's 19th chief of staff."
- more

The punch line of today's cartoon is cynically bittersweet. The phrase "Follow Me" is the traditional battle cry of every Israeli officer.

Have Times Changed?
