You got a lame duck President in the White House. You have Olmert with poll numbers close to minus. Abbas will soon join that club - along with the soon to be outed Seniora in Lebanon. The people can smell a rat in Abbas and his demise is days or weeks away at best. This is beyond laughable, Bush the decider, who has done a wonderful job in Iraq will meet with Olmert the loser in Lebanon and talk about what exactly? Everything those two idiots ever did proved to be total disasters and it's their wisdom Abbas is counting on? That's too funny. I give Abbas 2 weeks before the people throw him out. Reality is not what Washington or Tel-Aviv dictate. Rest assured, whatever action Bush and Olmert decide to undertake, the result will ALWAYS be the opposite of what they intended. Go ahead, invest now in Abbas - when it's self-serving - but the people are too smart for that. They will rise up against Abbas over night - he is not liked at all.
