Canada's Klaudia is absolutely right! Our state department is only into appeasement and I will blame the reasoning onto a universal school of foreign service that never see's there is a right or wrong to anything. If they did there would be no reason for diplomats as we could conduct our foreign relations in a very straight forward manner. Are there shades of gray? Of course! But not when we are to be understood by the world as a principled and resolute nation. Just how many France's can the free world sustain? Sleeping with the enemy is a condition "frought with peril" as any practical person knows. Ms Rice has a very difficult job, but Israel must be true to it's own national interests and recognize when to tell the US to shut up. Christians will not allow Israel to be cut off because they stand up to Arab tyranny.
