    And Susan Rice is not embarrassed to utter such nonsense?! Forget that all the substanceless statements made previously have done nothing but make Israel more determined to carry out its expansionism. Is she serious? The negotiations sponsored by the US have gone nowhere. They have failed utterly. Olmert did make some concessions but those have been rejected by this government and are a non-starter. Actions are needed at this point, not more meaningless "statements" that will be rebuffed by the agressor. Let them veto. They don't want to take on the zionist lobby this close to an election. So let them take on the justified wrath of the entire Arab world that sees the duplicity and hypocracy in their double standards. What is needed is punitive measures against an increasingly racist regime that continues to defy international law and refuses to uphold its commitments. Let the US be seen as a supporter of that and then let them bear the consequences for this folly.
