Really? And he is an aide to barak? Rember back in, was it 2002, when barak promised the US that 21 illegal outposts would be down before the could finish dayenu? They are all still up and a number of them, I believe, have expanded nicely and are being provided with government services and protection from the IDF. The only "pressure" that will work with these types is punitive, cutting off of funds, and condemnation in the international arena. The US should know by now that any other kind of pressure gets nothing but a wink and snub.
