Livni: "We can't bring back everyone"

Tzipi Livni mad an unbelievable statement today regarding Gilad Shalit. She said "We can't bring back everyone".

This is a terrible statement that undermines everything the army stands for. What motivation is there to serve in a combat unit if the government won't do everything to bring you back if you are captured?

Gestures to the Palestinians abound, releasing prisoners, giving them 100 million shekel etc. all for free. What has the government done to bring Shalit back? Absolutely nothing.

Bluke, this is nothing new. Remember when Olmert started the Lebanon II war and promised that one of its objectives was to bring back the captured soldiers?
Remember when the father of one of those soldiers confronted him after the war and asked where his boy was? And Olmert shrugged and made the father look selfish for thinking the state should have any responsibility for bringing him home?
