Mr. Levy's analysis is a sober and robust assessment of the current state of affairs in Israeli-American relations and Middle East policy. However, his aspiration for a more constructive policy during the close of the Bush Administration strays from the realm of possibility. The looters, con men and wackos on parade in Washington could no more pursue reasonable policies on any substantive issue than pigs could take wing. The Middle East, nuclear proliferation, fiscal policy, income disparity, environmental and natural resource management, and energy policy are all smoldering wrecks that will take at least a generation to repair, if it can be done at all. My curse on Republicans -- that they live long enough to be hated by their children for the world inherited by future generations.
