All treaties and peace deals are driven by relative advantage. Bush is trying to change the Middle East while America is dominant. Each year that will change. The Arabs are weak now. That will change. America is trying to force Israeli legitimacy on the Arabs while they are weak. The road to justice for the Palestinians does lie through Baghdad. The more that war imperils American intersts, the more America will pressure Israel to make concessions. The current power situation is unstable. Maybe Abu Mazen's grandchildren will negotiate a better deal when every Arab country has nuclear weapons, China has military bases in Saudi, and Iran is exporting oil and nuclear power. Of course, I thought our Empire would last about 100 years. Considering how much damage Bush has done in 5 years, we might be a Third World country in 50 years.
