    Now, we begin to see the cost of steadfastly avoiding opportunities for peace. Israel will have to begin paying it's way. I look foreward to the day when the US can stop paying these ingrates. At the moment, the US needs the money quite a lot more than the Israelis, who continue to use it to partition, and support settlements, contrary to US national policies. Israel, wake up and send Boo Boo packing, while you still have a chance to avoid ICC and the myriad of other sanctions like the growing BDS movement! Also consider how this affects your pet projects, like getting the US to fight Iran for Boo Boo, not gonna happen, even in your wildest delusional dreams, Boo Boo! The good will Boo Boo has built worldwide would fit in a thimble, with space to spare. Soon the separation wall will be to keep the ICC and war crimes and civil law suits out, and as well, it will be the only safe haven for many government officials. Get used to it!

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
