    It makes no sense to say the time isn't right for final status and we must make do with a "roadblock test" until conditions are more favorable. The I/P situation is in a downward spiral today precisely because everyone has avoided the difficult final status issues and settled for crisis management and damage control. This has given free range to rejectionists and enfeebled the leaders who look too cowardly to stand up to them. Doing more of the same isn't going to start miraculously producing strong govt and stability - just the opposite. And who cares if you can shoot down qassams in 3 years? In 3 years, you'll be facing more than qassams if you don't have a compromise in place by then. The idea that you can keep putting off the difficult compromises and things will somehow get better is the real Playstation fantasy. The I/P conflict doesn't need to lose a few roadblocks, it needs leaders who have the honesty to say what peace will really entail, and the backbone to do it.
