"For that end, the PM [Netanyahu] reportedly said, Israel would have to retain a military presence along its eastern border with Jordan, adding that any [peace] agreement that doesn't allow for those measure will not be accepted." - Haaretz Here is what Netanyahu cannot imagine giving up, a no longer relevant issue. IDF forces on the Jordan river were supposed to block Iraqi tanks from flooding in. Saddam is now deceased, Iraq has a weak army no longer a threat to anybody other than Iraqis. The US removed Saddam with the enthusiastic support from Israel and its Amen Gallery (the only country enthused about this, other than Iran - which kept quiet). The US paid a heavy price, and now Netanyahu says: It didn't matter to us, we still want protection from Iraq or no peace. And if the US suffers attacks for it, tough! I would have called Netanyahu an imbecile, except that this is a general Likudnik problem: they just remember the past, "whatever there was, will be. The future's so hard to see", so let's hang on to the past.
