    The Bush junta has clearly shifted it's target for the war to save the republican party in 2008 from Iran to Syria. Thus Livni is correct that there can be no peace. Here leader, Ehud Olmert would never think of offending his master George Bush and thus Israel cannot consider peace with Syria while Bush has it as the target for the spring 'save the republicans' war. That what serves the needs of the republican party and george bush might not serve the interest of Israel does not seem to matter to Livni or Olmert. Has peace with Egypt ill served Israel? Has peace with Jordan ill served Israel? It seems, however, that as long as Bush is the Decider in Chief, what ever might be good for Israel must be deferred to serve Olmert's Master in Chief. The irony is that if the Master in Chief actually wanted peace in the middle east with such a subservient slave as Omert he could have it at the flick of a finger.
