    America has realized, apparently belatedly, its complicity in the Israeli occupation which has spawned extremist violence around the world, and shaken the democratic foundations of the Bastion of Democracy, America itself. The terrorists of 9/11 saw their mission as revenge against America, whose chief crime was manifest in the Occupation of Palestine. Iraq has been intractable due in no small part to distrust of America due to this complicity, a bleeding of America which has yet to be stanched. Therefore, although the negotiations have been remarkably free of American pressure to this point, IF Israeli politicians fail to recognize the cost to America of their intransigence and belligerency, and contentment with the status quo as a tactic of war by attrition, it will be America's own fault. America holds the keys to success at and following Annapolis. The world is watching to see if America's spell will finally break or not.
