The Middle East Polka

It seems that there is a new hobby for Presidents to keep them busy in their last year in the last year of their presidency - Try to solve the problems in the Middle East. Clinton did it and failed, now Bush is doing it. Is this going to become a trend? I have a few thoughts on that.

  • When has giving land, money, excess chicken fat to the Palestinians ever brought more than five minutes of peace? Remember the Greenhouses
  • If it's so important, why wait till your last year in office?
These Palestinians are the same ones who danced in the street when the twin towers came down. The only thing that's ever been done that provides a respite from armed hostility has been the fence. Perhaps I'm way too pessimistic?
