In the heat of the last summer, before and after the nuclear agreement signed in Vienna between Iran and the powers, the name Ehud Barak came up again and again. In one place they wrote that he was warming up engines, in another - that he was somewhere on the lines, waiting for the opportunity to enter the field. Barak himself defined his situation in a conversation with an associate as a surfer waiting to catch the right wave: "I lie on the surfboard and wait.

A leader who failed to lead civilian divisions after him. Barak is any of these. That's his strength. This is also his weakness. Lightning.
