    1) The US doesn't claim to be a neutral peacebroker...where the ME is concerned...we are is the ONLY peacebroker. It is so easy to say 'we want peace'...it's not so easy to actually do something to get it accomplished. The Arab countries bemoan the fate of their Palestinian brothers and do little to help...France and the EU want to be players but I don't see a lot of francs or euros injected into a peace process. The Palestinians are too inept to do anything constructive except moan and groan about how badly they are treated...and Israel just wants to expand ever eastward. Hopefully, our new fiscally responsible Congress will rectify some of this...to the benefit of the American public rather than the ingrates that inhabit the Middle East. 2) To set the record straight...Bush didn't bomb that reactor because it was not in the best interests of the US to do so. That Olmert found the POTUS's decision to be "very disturbing" means nothing and less than nothing to me. My POTUS swore an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. That "injustice and suffering by innocent Israelis, Pals" you talk about...are self-inflicted wounds.
