Didn't Gates and Barak have enough time together in Washington to discuss additional military aid for our recalcitrant allied vassal state? His visit to the ME is grandstanding for the Israeli peanut gallery. What a joke! No matter how much Bibi and Barak want the US to becomre physical with Iran - the US can't and won't do it, because the Chinese would foreclose. LOL!! Stonewalling is not the way to peace; neither will it prevent Palestinian statehood.
