    Another "blame America" article, how original. I guess it's getting boring just blaming Israel for all the problems in the Middle East when you can blame America for the problems in the whole world. While America is certainly not perfect, whose foreign policy is better? Russia (or the old Soviet Union)? China? How about France? Maybe Iran? Consider the Arab League, that's a real effective organization with a truly remarkable foreign policy. Iraq had an interesting foreign policy when it was still a country. Ask any Kuwaiti. Of course, it's easier to blame America for anything you don't like in the world. But, all things considered, America has been the greatest force for good in the world for the last 100 years. The real mystery is why blame America instead of the real villains of the world. Sure, Ms. Rice's visit is mostly P.R. - you ever think that has something to do with the chaos in the PA? Or that the problem has no solution?
