Now, now - don't be too rough on Mr. Lincoln. IMHO, he's a right intellegent fellow even if he is a Texican Republican. How 'bout that chase? With the eyes of the world literally and figuratively focused just north of Har Megiddo and opportunity is at hand. There could even be a "dry run" now - until Condi puts her foot down and says THAT'S IT! If Israel stops its incursions and Palestine its Qassams, then it could work. Shalit and the MPs could go home and there would be a promise to redress the prisoner issue as the Palestinian street wants. Unlike with Hezbollah, it was Gaza Beach that triggered "Summer Rain," IMHO. Consolidation is still required but a "renouncement" would get the cash flowing again since the other 2 "requests" have been accepted. I think its win-win if pride doesn't get in the way. You go Hosni!
