Back in 2005 the Bush Administration felt it had succeeded in Lebanon and thought it would secure its realignment with the West. The administration still has not given up on this objective, and lets Israel know it doesn't really approve of peace talk, because the original game plan must be adhered to. This completely flusters the likes of Alon Liel who based on his Turkish experience feels Israel can negotiate itself into the Middle Eastern Bazaar. But with Turkey now being turned into a bad guy with the ADL's labeling of Turks as previously genocidal, it would appear that if the Middle Easterners want to make peace like Alon Liel wishes, Washington will have to be rejected by all the locals. But the Saudis and the Gulf states fear Iran too much to dispense with the American crutch. Ditto for the Egyptians, Jordanians, and Israelis. And it is not altogether clear that the rodeo will be shut down by the American people in the next election. Liel is not alone in his tantrum.
