Netanyahu's Sea Legs

When you consider Admiral Netanyahu’s smug look last November during an excursion to an Israeli naval base in light of last night’s FUBAR attack on the Gaza flotilla, you almost want to spit.

More suggestive, though, was the highlight of the photo expedition. While boarding this smaller vessel, Netanyahu took a spill that almost flattened one of Israel’s naval men and made the high testosterone Prime Minister look like an incompetent.

Considering how badly the Israeli military botched the raid on the Mavi Marmara, the Turkish ship, it seems parallels abound.
