The Neocon Wishes Ariel Sharon Well:

Naturally, the Neocon wishes Ariel Sharon a quick recovery, although things are looking fairly bleak for him at this time. We have chosen an Image of Sharon from the 1973 Yom Kippur war, studying a map shortly before leading his Armored Division across the Suez Canal under heavy fire to surround the entire Egyptian 3rd Army, thus assuring Israel a stunning military victory in a war that could have gone either way.

There are many questions surrounding the events of the past few weeks relating to Mr. Sharon's health. Why was the Prime Minister not kept in the hospital longer for further observation after his initial stroke days before? Why did surgeons wait three weeks to schedule minor surgery to correct the congenital hole in his heart. Were the blood thinners he was prescribed the best choice? Why was Sharon driven from his ranch to the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem when there were a number of closer hospitals? Why was he not helicoptered to the hospital instead of driven for over an hour? The answers to these questions will have to wait for the next few days or weeks, as will the answers as to how all this plays out politically in Israel and the Middle East in general.
