    Hello Dana, By now it is well known that neither the Palestinians nor Israel fulfilled even step A (and AA, resp.) of their obligations under the Roadmap. The Palestinians did not dismantle all the terror groups, and Israel did not remove the "illegal outposts" (about 100 of them). Israel of course can claim that it didn't take the step because the Palestinians did not take theirs. The problem is: The Palestinians CANNOT take step A. Dismantling the terror groups "was thought" to be doable under Arafat. This itself was a mistake since Arafat did not have much power over Hamas. But at least he was seen as a formidable leader. What about today? Can anybody expect that Hamas will dismantle? What crazy liberation movement dismantles its militia before a peace agreement? Today Rice can come and still speak of the Roadmap as if it could lead anywhere. Something is rotten in the state of the Union. Perhaps she lacks a divorce experience (to take your parable). The poor woman was never married and never had kids. Maybe that is why she is not a problem solver. Maybe. P.S. Did you notice that your friend iliveinny is none other than Flushman/The Hydra?
