This is merely more of the same.

Don't misunderstand me, I'd love for it to work. And kudos to Obama for trying a somewhat different polemical approach. But the history since the Ptolemy's has been otherwise.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Hopefully, Obama.

the thing about history is this: Time will tell.

As I said before, withholding or the treat of doing so of free money flow to Israel and its neighbors will put everyone on notice that we are SERIOUS. Send AIPAC packing because they are simply the enabler for free monies to Israel. If we are going to bribe anyone it should be done under our terms and our choosing. We don't need political manipulation and arm twisting to shape our foreign policies for that region. Divorce the bitches NOW!
If he does this he will be a one term President. If that long.

Is that because peace in the ME is such a bad thing? Or is it because the armament industry will be in the brinks of bankruptcy? Or maybe AIPAC will retaliate?

I’ve said for years that the biggest problem Israel has is the cost of their Army … they need protection and they don’t have the oil income like others do. I suggested we give Israel Oklahoma…move the Okies to Arkansas…let the Palestinians have Israel. The Israelis will be protected by Highway Patrol of bordering states…it is just too simple! And they can have all the oil in Oklahoma!
